|Aroldis Chapman surrenders walkoff run vs. Yankees |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman (0-3) was hit with the loss Sunday afternoon against the Yankees in New York.
Chapman surrendered a walkoff run-scoring infield single to Brian McCann with one out in the ninth inning. He was charged with one run on two hits and no walks while striking out one over one-third of an inning. He owns a 2.40 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP over 30 innings of relief.
|Aroldis Chapman suffers minor hamstring injury in All-Star Game |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/16/14) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman aggravated a minor hamstring injury while covering first base during Tuesday's All-Star Game, but he says the hamstring is fine, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Chapman doesn't expect the issue preventing him from pitching Friday if needed. He managed to record the final two outs for the National League team while tossing just five pitches in the All-Star appearance.
|Aroldis Chapman strikes out side for 21st save |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/13/14) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was dominant in the ninth inning during Sunday's 6-3 win against the Pirates, earning his 21st save. Chapman struck out the side to earn his fifth save in July.
Chapman has recorded two or more strikeouts in five straight appearances. He has at least one strikeout in every appearance this season. He has 60 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings.
|Aroldis Chapman dominates again Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman dominated in the late innings again Friday.
Chapman entered the game with a one run lead and nailed down the save. He pitched a perfect inning of work, striking out all three hitters he faced. Chapman wound up throwing 14 pitches, 11 of which were strikes. He recorded his 20th save of the year.
|Aroldis Chapman works out of jam for save |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman put the tying runs on base Tuesday, but worked out of the jam to close out a 4-2 win over the Cubs.
Chapman allowed a leadoff single to Junior Lake, and then put the tying run on base in the form of Mike Olt, who walked. He struck out Ryan Sweeney to end the threat, however, his second strikeout of the inning.
Chapman is now 18 for 20 in save opportunities for the season, and he lowered his ERA to 2.45 in 25 2/3 innings.
|Aroldis Chapman was gearing up for another year of 100 mph fastballs when he took a liner off the face late in spring training, fracturing a bone above his left eye. He had a metal plate inserted to stabilize the fracture and will need at least 6-8 weeks before he can start throwing again. By the time he gets back into game shape, the Reds may elect to go the cautious route and hold him out until the All-Star break. As closers go, Chapman ranks right up there with Craig Kimbrel. He actually had his best ever strikeout rate in 2013, unbelievably topping his 15.3 per nine innings from the year before. And though his ERA rose by more than a run (to a still-impressive 2.54) as some of his earlier control issues resurfaced, he was at his best down the stretch. Because he's so good at what he does, you wouldn't want to overlook him on Draft Day because of the injury, but you'll obviously need other sources of saves early in the season. Draft Chapman late in the hope he can make a difference down the stretch.
