This might help explain Aroldis Chapman’s signature fastball.
The Yankees’ star closer looked swole as ever in a picture he shared to Instagram on Saturday, showing himself and a few friends playing dominoes.
Chapman has spent some of baseball’s coronavirus-induced break bulking up, as shown by another social-media photo of the 32-year-old power lifting two weeks ago.
So it goes for Chapman, long-regarded as one of MLB’s best athletes — and not just because of his hulk-like muscles.
A baseball insider once told The Post’s George King that the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Chapman beat speedster center fielder Billy Hamilton, who stands six feet and 160 pounds, in a 100-yard dash while the two were with the Cincinnati Reds.
It remains to be seen when baseball will return from the virus that infected two Yankees minor leaguers.
