Aroldis Chapman Agrees to Deal with Mysterious NL Team. Could it be the Reds?

Twitter is all abuzz this morning.  Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports broke the story with his tweets:

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

Narrowed it down: It's an NL Central team. Cincinnati making more and more sense. Reds "going after him like crazy," team source said.

Lots of others have come out and said that they are hearing that it is the Reds.  If that is so, then Chapman is currently at GABP laying some ink on paper.  We'll update as there are more details and confirmations.  And yes, I'm trying to find something out as best I can...

@JeffPassan confirms the deal:

Confirmed: LHP Aroldis Chapman agrees to five-year, $30 million contract with Cincinnati #Reds.
