After missing the end of last season to labrum surgery, Oakland Athletics’ third baseman Matt Chapman is back making disgusting plays. And honestly, these type of plays would be getting the attention they deserved if he wasn’t playing for such cheap ownership.
Look at this madness:

Maybe Nolan Arenado makes that play, but that’s about it. And for anyone worried about that hip recovery–hope this video helps.
If Chapman figures it out at the plate, it might be time to throw this dude in the conversation as a top 10 player in the sport. Welcome back, Matt Chapman!
