Video: Chapman featured on MLB Network

Aroldis Chapman was featured on MLB Network recently and it's easy to see why. The Cuban phenom has been absolutely dominant this season and figures to be right in the mix for National League Cy Young Award honors along with team,mate Johnny Cueto.
In 60 appearances, the southpaw has posted a 5-4 record, 1.27 ERA, 33 saves, 0.719 WHIP and a gaudy 7.06 K/BB ratio. His 15.9 SO/9 ratio is on pace to set the new all-time record for a reliever (min. 60 IP) in a single season and his 24 straight save conversions have already established a new franchise record.
The All-Star is simply having a marvelous individual campaign; so good in fact that it may be the best a reliever has ever had in the history of Major League Baseball. And that is saying something, folks.
