Player Profile: He's the hardest-throwing reliever in big-league history and among the most unhittable. Dating back to his first full season in 2011, Chapman ranks first among relief pitchers in strikeouts and opponents' batting average. He's coming off another dynamite campaign, split between the Yankees and Cubs, though his domestic abuse issues may repel some suitors in free agency. Either way, he ain't signing with a 100-loss team.
