CHAPMAN THROWS, RUNS TODAY AT GABP
Under the watchful eyes of members of the Reds medical staff, Aroldis Chapman took to the sun-drenched field of Great American Ball Park this afternoon to work out with teammate Brayan Pena. As you remember, Chapman was hit in the face with a line drive in a Spring Training game on 3/19. The next day he had surgery to insert a 3-inch titanium plate and 12 screws to stabilize bones around his left eye.
Chapman has been working out and throwing at GABP while the rest of the Reds have been on the road. Today he threw “long-toss” and then threw again from about 90-feet. He and Pena also got some cardio in; running in the outfield from foul pole to foul pole.
Pena, smiling during the entire workout, seemed very impressed with the way Chapman was throwing, at one point declaring “heeee’s baaaack!”
Here are some photos from today’s session with Pena…
