Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman will visit a doctor on Wednesday for an update on the status of fractures to his nose and eye sockets.
Chapman has not done any baseball related activities since March 19 when he took a liner off his face but he is doing “fine” according to his comments during a press conference on Monday.
Chapman will see the doctor Wednesday. He hasn't begun exercising yet. Says he feel great. #reds

The hope is that Chapman will be ready to pitch by mid-May.
While Chapman is out the Reds are going with a closer by committee. That makes for an uneasy situation in fantasy baseball for those looking for saves. Sean Marshall, JJ Hoover and when healthy Jonathan Broxton could all notch saves.
Chapman had 38 saves in each of the last two seasons.
