Report: Aroldis Chapman To Pitch Bullpen Session at Fenway on Wednesday If there's one thing the Red Sox may gain from the Yankees being in the World Series this fall and not them, it's a leg up on one of the hottest names in the free-agent pool.

According to Kiley McDaniel of Baseball Prospectus, Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman is planning on pitching a bullpen session for the Red Sox brass at Fenway Park on Wednesday, weather permitting.

The 21-year-old southpaw has been rumored to be talking with many MLB teams including the Red Sox, Cardinals, A's, Blue Jays, Yankees and Tigers. 

Chapman's heater has reportedly been clocked at 100 mph and he is considered by many to be the best Latin amateur to ever hit the free-agent market.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
