Astros Trade Rumors: Houston A Player For Reds Closer Aroldis Chapman?

The Houston Astros' acquisition spree in advance of the 2015 MLB Trade Deadline could take yet another impressive turn before Friday's cutoff, with the Astros rumored to be one team in the hunt for Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Astros are a solid possibility for Chapman in recent days and interest in the Reds fireballer extends all the way up the front office ladder:

Chapman, 27, wowed both teammates and American League opponents at the All-Star Game in Cincinnati, hitting in excess of 100 mph on almost every pitch he threw. He has converted on 21 of his 22 save opportunities this year, pitching to a 1.65 ERA with an eye-popping 77 strikeouts in just 43.2 innings pitched (44 appearances).
