Chapman rehab
From Dayton Dragons
Reds all-star Aroldis Chapman started Saturday's game for the Dragons in his second injury rehabilitation assignment.  Chapman pitched to three batters over one inning.  He struck out the first batter he faced and then got a pop-out to the catcher.  He walked the third batter of the inning on a 3-2 pitch but then picked that runner off first base to conclude his outing.  Chapman expects to make two more rehab appearances in the Minor Leagues before being activated by the Reds.
