Reds | Aroldis Chapman needs 6-8 weeks recovery time

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman (face) can recover from his facial injuries in six to eight weeks, but it doesn't mean he'll be throwing immediately after that timetable.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Chapman to need somewhere around eight to 10 weeks before he's back throwing and ready to return. This is a big blow to those that took Chapman in the first tier of big-name closers. If you're looking for his replacement, J.J. Hoover is probably the best speculation, but Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall could form some sort of platoon.
