Aroldis Chapman‘s minor-league rehab assignment wasn’t exactly smooth sailing, but after a maximum 30-day stint recovering from shoulder inflammation (and control problems) the Reds have activated him from the disabled list.
Chapman allowed 12 runs in 13 innings between Double-A and Triple-A, but did post a strong 20/8 K/BB ratio and threw a scoreless inning in each of his final two appearances.
Prior to landing on the DL in mid-May he had a 6.92 ERA and more walks (20) than strikeouts (15) in 13 innings for the Reds, walking 12 of the last 19 batters he faced before the Reds mercifully shut him down. Presumably he’ll be eased back into the bullpen mix with some low-leverage outings, because he may not be out of the woods yet.
