Reds still sorting out bullpen options
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/19/15) While Aroldis Chapman is locked in as the Reds' closer, the eighth-inning job remains up in the air for the club as spring training winds down, according to MLB.com.
Sean Marshall is still recovering from shoulder surgery in 2014, leaving the set-up man spot as an open competition between a trio of players - Sam LeCure, Manny Parra and J.J. Hoover.
"I think right now what we're doing is we're trying to figure out who our best options are," Reds manager Bryan Price said.
"We're going to have to evolve as a bullpen. I think we know that Chapman's the closer and that we're going to have to evolve into roles to a certain degree," Price added. "Opening Day, I couldn't tell you who would be in the eighth inning. … There's a lot of balls in the air with the bullpen beyond the closer."
Reds closer Aroldis Chapman working multiple innings
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) After the Reds considered adding closer Aroldis Chapman to the starting lineup in 2013, the team is now working him multiple innings during spring training.
Chapman worked two innings on Friday against the Dodgers.
"The repetitions were what I felt really helped him get comfortable with his mechanics and get comfortable throwing that slider and changeup," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "Even though we're going to limit him to one or two innings during the season, Spring Training is a great opportunity for him to connect with his mechanics and off-speed pitches. We figured it's not broke, let's not try to fix it. He's not going to throw four or five innings but multiple-inning outings in the spring will be something fairly commonplace for Aroldis."
In three appearances he has allowed two hits, one walk with six strikeouts in five innings pitched.

Reds avoid arbitration with Chapman, agree to $8.05M for '15
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/13/15) The Reds announced Friday they avoided arbitration with closer Aroldis Chapman by agreeing to a one-year deal for the 2015 season. Chapman will earn $8.05 million in 2015, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Chapman had filed for $8.7 million and the Reds offered $6.65 million.
Chapman has made the All-Star team in three straight seasons. He has also had at least 36 saves over the last three seasons.
Reds, Aroldis Chapman swap arbitration figures
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman has filed for $8.7 million in arbitration, while the team has offered $6.65 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
Chapman is eligible for arbitration for the second time this offseason. He racked up 36 saves in 2014, his third straight season with at least 36 saves, while also posting a 2.00 ERA and 106:24 K:BB ratio in 54 innings.
|2014 summary: After getting struck in the head by a line drive during a spring training game, Aroldis Chapman figured to miss a sizeable chunk of the season, but incredibly, he was back on the mound for the Reds on May 11. He made up for lost time by saving 36 games in 38 chances, falling just two saves short of his career high established in each of the previous two seasons. Improbably, Chapman also struck out nearly two batters per inning for a career-high 17.7 K/9 ratio. In fact, only Dellin Betances and Wade Davis had a higher strikeout total among relievers.|
Playing time status: It appears that the days of Chapman being considered as a rotation option are finally behind us. Look for Chapman to embark on his fourth season as the Reds' closer.
2015 outlook: Among closers, only Craig Kimbrel and Greg Holland earned more Fantasy points per game last season than Chapman, and he trailed them by a narrow margin. There's no reason to doubt Chapman's status as an elite reliever, and he should be one of the top three relievers taken in mixed league drafts.
