Diamondbacks Reportedly Have Offer on the Table for Aroldis Chapman

The Arizona Diamondbacks have an offer on the table that would send left-handed closer Aroldis Chapman to the Valley of the Sun.  The D-Backs are awaiting word on their proposal, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.  Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Arizona would extend Chapman beyond the 2016 season, which is the main reason they have interest in the closer, who will hit free agency following next season. The team signed a TV Deal in February worth $1.5 billion and that deal will be important in the process to sign Chapman long-term.

Chapman, 27, has recored 21 saves and an ERA of 1.65 in 43 2/3 innings this season.  The four-time All-Star is the hardest throwing pitcher in the game and his fastball has been recorded at an incredible 105 mph.

This would be a great move by the D-Backs if they can pull it off, but it should cost a pretty penny to receive a top three closer in the game.

Would this be a smart move for the D-Backs?
