After missing the Cincinnati Reds’ first 35 games of the season due to being struck in the face by a line drive during spring training, Aroldis Chapman has returned to occupy his familiar ninth inning role.
Chapman is also once again lighting up radar guns, as we saw on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals. According to MLB.com, Chapman hit exactly 100 mph with four of his thirteen pitches. Then, there was the one you see above, which was clocked at a pretty ridiculous 103 mph.
The flame throwing left-hander followed that pitch with this one to end the game.
Welcome back, Aroldis Chapman. Radar guns across Major League Baseball have missed you.
