Anthony founded Magnus Media this year and said Nov. 30 it is forming a joint venture that will represent Cincinnati Reds flame-throwing relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman.

Praver Shapiro Sports Management, part of the joint venture, is headed by agents Barry Praver and Scott Shapiro.

Chapman is widely considered the fastest-throwing pitcher in the major leagues. He is eligible for free agency after the 2016 World Series.
