Cuban youngster Aroldis Chapman has been attached to a number of teams this winter, including the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs long ago appeared to bow out of the bidding – but word is breaking that Chapman has signed with a mystery National League team, despite being most recently rumored to be headed to the Angels.

Cuban LHP Aroldis Chapman agrees to $30M deal with National League team, according to source. Left Ft. Lauderdale airport this a.m. to sign. Jeff Passan.

Don’t get, well, any hopes up for the Cubs on this one. But it will be interesting to see where the kid ends up, and how soon he shows that he can pitch in the bigs. The Marlins are known to have made an affirmative offer, though $30 million is much higher than was reported to be their offer.
