Chapman in Reds’ clubhouse three days after surgery

Aroldis Chapman, with two black eyes – and a big smile – returned to the Cincinnati Reds’ clubhouse in Goodyear, Ariz., on Sunday, four days after being hit in the face by a line drive. “I feel a lot better than I thought I would,” Chapman said, wearing a hat with the brim pulled down to cover the surgical staples. The 26-year old left-hander had surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone above his left eye. A night earlier, he was hit by a ball off the bat of Kansas City’s Salvador Perez. “You don’t have time to think about it but even when I was on the ground, I didn’t have any bad thoughts in my mind about what I was going through,” Chapman said. “It didn’t bother me until they told me that it would be two months before I could pitch. That was what made me mad.” – AP

MLB notebook: Injured Aroldis Chapman ‘very lucky’

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman underwent surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game. Team medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek said Chapman could begin throwing off a mound in six to eight weeks, a timetable that could get him back in games in late May.
