The string of bad luck following Aroldis Chapman has struck again.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Chapman's hotel room was robbed on Tuesday night while the Reds' closer was at the team's game against the Pirates at PNC Park.
Police were dispatched to Chapman's room shortly after 10pm after guests at the hotel heard a woman screaming for help from inside Chapman's room. The woman has not been identified, but a news release stated that she was the "guest of a male who attended the Pirates baseball game and who was not present at the time of the incident. During this incident the male guest had various items taken and was later interviewed by detectives."
This incident follows two recent issues - Chapman was arrested after being pulled over for doing 93 MPH on a suspended license, and he is being sued for 18 million dollars by a man in Cuba who claims he was jailed and blames the Reds' closer for his imprisonment.
Chapman's off-field issues have not affected his on-field performance. He is 4-0 with a 0.00 ERA for Cincinnati.
The Reds have made no formal statement on the matter at this time.

Either Aroldis Chapman has some bad mojo surrounding him off the field or he's got some secrets.
The reason we say that; apparently during last night's Pittsburgh Pirates/Cincinnati Reds game in Pittsburgh, someone or ones broke into the big Cuban lefthander's room and robbed him.
And it appears police found out...
It’s safe to say that the month of May has not been kind to Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman. Things began to head downhill when he was arrested for driving 93 mph with a suspended license.

Something very strange, dark and mysterious is going on surrounding Aroldis Chapman.
It was just over a week ago that I declared him the lynchpin to the Cincinnati Reds 2012 uprising. A night later he gets in trouble for driving his car 101 miles an hour in Grove City. I thought little of it. Earlier this week, Chapman’s ‘girlfriend’ was found at a hotel in Pittsburgh bound...

All eyes have been on Aroldis Chapman and his dominance through 26 scoreless innings. Unfortunately the 100+MPH arm has people completely overlooking the Oakland A’s reliever’s impressive streak of 23.1 scoreless, which ended last night due to a RBI Morneau double. Cook’s ERA now sits at .75. Billy Beane acquired Cook as a part of the blockbuster trade sending Trevor Cahill...
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman has been targeted by a
robber at his Pittsburgh hotel room.
When Sparky Lyle strode from the bullpen the mound at Yankee Stadium during his days as a premier relief pitches in the mid- to late 1970s, organist Eddie Layton would play "Pomp and Circumstance." That probably wouldn't work as a ballpark song these days, but to hear Dusty Baker tell it, perhaps the traditional graduation accompaniment should be played on the sound...
The month of May treated the Redlegs very kindly. It was a month that saw them not only get over the .500 mark, but it saw them catapult past the Cardinals for first place in the division as well. And you can't do that without some getting some good individual play from your players.
Here are a couple of guys who were pivotal in the positive turnaround this month:
