Found September 15, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Cincinnati Reds left-hander Aroldis Chapman threw for the first time since being shut down Monday with shoulder fatigue. He had no problems. "We said five to seven days," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "This is day No. 4. It helps that we have a couple of off days in there, it's not like he's missing seven games." Chapman agreed. "A few more days, I'll be ready," he said through a translator. Next week? "Maybe," he said in English. Chapman had a small press conference before Friday's 4-0 loss to the Miami Marlins. Miami is Chapman's adopted home. He isn't happy about missing the series here. "I don't feel good," Chapman said. "I wish this happened earlier in the year. This is the time of the season when we are on the final stretch. We would like to be better." But Chapman is confident he'll be strong in the postseason. "By October, I hope to be a lot better," he said.

Putting to rest the Kimbrel VS Chapman comparison

Looking at the NL leaders in saves, its quite fitting that Aroldis Chapman and Craig Kimbrel are tied for the league lead in saves. It seldomly works out that the two best relievers in a respective league, let alone in all of baseball, also have the most saves in a league. Both have performed well enough to be mentioned in the discussion for the NL Cy Young. Neither will win, but...

In addition to the expected contributions...

Marlins try to put another dent in Cincinnati

Although the Cincinnati Reds are running away with the NL Central, there are some growing concerns for Dusty Baker's club.

Game 146: Waiting for the Cardinals to lose again
