Reds | Nothing set in stone for Aroldis Chapman

Despite the fact that the Cincinnati Reds re-signed RP Jonathan Broxton to be their closer, the move from relief pitcher to starting pitcher for RP Aroldis Chapman isn't set in stone. "Nothing is in stone right now," assistant general manager Bob Miller said. "We told (Chapman) before he left to prepare like he was coming in as a starter. That's the hard part, preparing as a starter. There's nothing set in stone. When we talked to Jonathan, we said you're going to be in the backend of the bullpen." Chapman threw only 71 2/3 innings last year, so expecting him to top 200 innings in 2013 is unrealistic. He threw only 109 innings as a starter in 2010, and he threw 118 1/3 innings in Cuba in 2009.
