Chapman finished last season with a 1.55 ERA and 36 saves in 39 opportunities, winning the 2016 World Series with the Chicago Cubs despite his fatigue-related implosion in the decisive Game 7.
The Dodgers have been linked to Chapman in the past and nearly acquired him last December. Meanwhile Chapman’s former club, the New York Yankees, also reportedly reached out to the flamethrowing lefty in recent days.
An elite reliever at the ripe age of 28 (albeit one with an unflattering past), Chapman is almost certain to see even more potential free agent suitors flock to him as the offseason progresses.
