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.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman could return Friday

Thu, 08 May 2014 10:22:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman (face) could return from the disabled list Friday, May 9. However, manager Bryan Price was non-committal about Chapman's return after the closer had two rough rehab outings with Triple-A Louisville this week. C Corky Miller, who caught Chapman at Louisville, didn't seem too concerned about Chapman being ready to return to the majors. RP Jonathan Broxton is 5-for-5 in save opportunities with Chapman out, but getting Chapman back will allow the team to slide Broxton back into a setup role.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton may be used in save situations if the Reds choose to ease Chapman back into the role. Hang onto Broxton if you must in very deep leagues, but cutting him for a more useful player is understandable when Chapman is back.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman likely to throw Wednesday

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 12:39:24 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman (face) will likely throw live batting practice Wednesday, April 23, after throwing a 45-pitch bullpen session Sunday, April 20. Chapman will begin a rehab assignment after throwing batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman should be able to return to the team shortly after his rehab assignment. Jonathan Broxton will lose most of his value when Chapman returns, as Chapman is expected to return immediately to the closing role.

Reds | Jonathan Broxton to close until Aroldis Chapman returns

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:52:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price confirmed that RP Jonathan Broxton will continue to see most of the save opportunities until RP Aroldis Chapman (face) returns. "If you have somebody that's cemented into that role -- it doesn't mean he'll get every save opportunity -- but it does allow me to look at the game for eight innings," Price said. "It gets convoluted when you're going to go 'OK, let's get to the ninth and see what's left and pick your option from that spot.'"

Fantasy Tip: Chapman may not be back for another month, so Broxton owners will have some time to make use of his short-term ninth-inning duties.

Reds | Jonathan Broxton won't close initially

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:34:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday, April 8, that RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) will not close in his first appearance since coming off the 15-day disabled list. "I'd like to get him in a game, pitch an inning and get his feet (wet). Inevitably, he will be our closer," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to hold off using Broxton until he is officially plugged back in as closer. Until then, he is useful only in deep rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. Expect Broxton to be in the closer's role sooner rather than later, though.
