Chapman reportedly being sued for $18M
NEW YORK -- Two Spanish-language newspapers in Miami -- Cafe Fuerte and El Nuevo Herald -- are reporting that Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman is being sued for $18 million.

The lawsuit alleges that Chapman was an informant for Cuban state authorities after a failed defection attempt and helped turn in another man in order to get back on the country's national baseball team. The suit was filed by the family of a Cuban-American named Danilo Curbello Garcia and alleges that Chapman is responsible for Garcia's arrest.

Reds spokesman Rob Butcher said that Chapman was aware of the lawsuit, but that the left-hander had no comment.
