Braves deny interest in Chapman
There will be a number of Major League clubs pursuing Cuban pitching sensation Aroldis Chapman. But contrary to an SI.com report, the Braves are not currently in the mix for the 21-year-old left-handed pitcher.
“We don’t have any plans to meet with him at this time,” Wren said via an email response on Monday night.
The Orioles, Red Sox, White Sox, Cubs, Yankees, Mets, Athletics and Cardinals are among the teams that have reportedly shown interest in Chapman, who defected on July 1 while the Cuban National team was participating in an international tournament in The Netherlands.
