Reds closer Aroldis Chapman shuts door in style Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) There was a shortage of quality pitching in a shootout Saturday in Milwaukee. But Reds closer Aroldis Chapman gave more than a quality performance. He was lights-out.

Chapman's fastball was clocked as high as 102 mph in a dominant ninth inning that resulted in his 25th save. He fanned Elian Herrera and Jean Segura to end it.

The fine effort came at a good time for Chapman, who had been struggling a bit. He had given up nine hits and five walks over his previous eight innings.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman, who is nursing a shoulder injury, threw with good velocity in a pregame session on Saturday, per Cincinnati.com.

“He’s day-to-day,” manager Bryan Price said. “It’s impossible for me to say if he’s available (Saturday). We’re always kicking the tires. It’s one of those things that doesn’t necessitate a (disabled list move). It’s one of those things where we’re going to eventually say he’s ready for the game today.”


Reds' Aroldis Chapman dealing with sore shoulder


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/20/2015) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman has been bothered by a sore shoulder, which has kept him from pitching in each of the last two games, according to MLB.com. Chapman hasn't appeared since blowing a save against the Royals on Tuesday. 

The Reds did not present Chapman with a save opportunity on Wednesday or Thursday, but it does not appear as though he would have been available. His status for Friday's contest against the Diamondbacks is currently unknown. 

"The game [Chapman] had the other day against Kansas City, he never was able to get loose," Reds manager Bryan Price said after Thursday's loss to the D-Backs, per MLB.com. "So the last couple of days we just needed to give him treatment and rest. We're hoping with each day that goes by, that he's ready to return. We're not going to force anything, but with our bullpen limitations, we need guys to pitch deep into the games and starters to be aggressive in the zone. We need to get healthy in a hurry."
