The left-hander threw 25 pitches in the bullpen before Cincinnati opened a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Reds hope to have him back sometime in May.
Analysis: Chapman sustained fractures above his left eye and his nose when he was hit by a liner on March 19. He had a plate inserted in the forehead the next day. He has to be careful not to get hit in the forehead while it heals. Chapman said his arm felt good. He'll throw in the bullpen a few more times before pitching to Reds hitters.
