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
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. The left-hander with a fastball that has reached 105 mph could start exercising and throwing on flat ground in a couple of weeks, Kremchek said.
