CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Reds will trade pitcher Aroldis Chapman to the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to FOX Major League Baseball reporter Ken Rosenthal.

The Dodgers agreed to acquire Chapman for two unnamed prospects, Rosenthal reports. The deal is pending review of medical records.

The deal is unsurprising as Chapman trade rumors have been flying for weeks. Experts say the 27-year-old's price tag is just too much for Cincinnati. 

Chapman, known as 'The Cuban Missile' averaged at least 33 saves in the past four seasons. His fastball has been clocked as high as 105 mph, according to MLB scouts.

The Reds have not yet commented on the trade. FOX19 NOW will continue to update this story.
