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. Jonathan Broxton , who recently returned from the DL, should be covering the ninth in Chapman's absence. - Luckey Helms

The news on Aroldis Chapman continues to be not-so-disastrous. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated on Wednesday that Chapman could be throwing live BP fairly soon, by the end of the team's upcoming 10-game road trip.

Although Aroldis Chapman has been resuming baseball activities with some light workouts, he is still far from returning to the big leagues. In his stead, J.J. Hoover has struggled and the Reds will likely look to Jonathan Broxton (who was just re-activated from the DL) to close until Chapman returns. - Luckey Helms
The Fantasy Fix | Apr 7th, 3:24am
Chapman is recovering from a scary injury. In the meantime, it looks like JJ Hoover will get the first shot at holding down the Red's closer job. - Rich Migliorisi
Fangraphs | Apr 7th, 2:56am
Initial report suggested that Chapman would be sidelined up to six-to-eight weeks, but reports today suggest he may be able to start throwing next week. In the meantime, those speculating for saves should snag Jonathan Broxton (9% owned in Yahoo!) off the waiver wire until Chapman's return. - Alan Harrison
Roto Authority | Apr 7th, 1:09am
Without Aroldis Chapman , Cincy is still looking for their closer. Because the Redlegs have not committed to J.J. Hoover , Sam LeCure , or Logan Ondrusek , former closer Jonathan Broxton may take the gig outright next week (or whenever he returns from the DL). - Luckey Helms
