2. Aroldis Chapman (RP-NYY)
They don’t call him the Cuban Missile for nothing folks.
Not only were fans in awe, but his All-Star teammates were completely flabbergasted when he whiffed the entire side during last July’s Mid-Summer Classic:
100 miles an hour isn’t a climax for Aroldis Chapman, it’s an average.
Then, when thinking about his high-80s slider and change, the thought of “unfair” comes to mind. That high-80s speed feels more like a 50 mile an hour knuckleball after one of his sizzling fastballs comes across the plate.
