WATCH: Chapman with impressive Cubs debut

by - Senior Editor -

New Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts (Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia) in the Cubs 8-1 victory over the White Sox.

Chapman had 12 pitches that were 100 MPH or faster with his fastest pitch at 103.

Jason Hammel joked with reporters after the game, "I'm not impressed. I thought we were getting a guy that throws 105."
