Reds | Aroldis Chapman roughed up in non-save situation

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman allowed four hits and three earned runs while walking two and striking out one in only two-thirds of an inning in a non-save situation against the Chicago Cubs Friday, May 3. He threw 32 pitches in the outing, and RP J.J. Hoover pitched one-third of an inning with a strikeout to record his first save.

Fantasy Tip: Hoover only entered the game because Jonathan Broxton had already been used in the eighth inning. Chapman was likely not allowed to finish the inning because of his high pitch count. It won't be too alarming if Chapman is rested tomorrow night as a result. The outing is disappointing for Chapman's owners, but if it's any consolation, it came in a non-save situation.
