Reds | Aroldis Chapman aggravates hamstring

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 20:45:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds CL Aroldis Chapman (hamstring) needed a visit from the trainer after throwing a pitch Thursday, July 31. Chapman threw a couple of warmup pitches but eventually closed out the game. He said after the game that he should be available Friday.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Chapman finished out the game is an encouraging sign, but his availability is still worth checking on for the next day or so. He is one of the most dominant closers in the game so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Reds give him a day or two off.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman tweaked hamstring

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 07:57:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds CL Aroldis Chapman (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring injury in the All-Star Game covering first base. Chapman said he was fine and isn't 100 percent ready to run. "I will be fine," Chapman said. "I've been pitching through it for a while. As long as I don't have to run, it feels good to pitch."

Fantasy Tip: We don't expect this to hinder him too much because his results have been phenomenal of late. However, it's something to be cautious of moving forward. Jonathan Broxton should be handcuffed to him if possible.
