Roto Authority | Apr 20th, 2:59am
Aroldis Chapman is steadily making progress in his return to the big leagues. After throwing a bullpen session earlier in the week, Chapman appears to be getting close to being cleared to throw batting practice. After that step and a few more bullpen sessions, we'll have a much clearer timeline.
