Chapman to start rehab assignment Monday · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report
 

Left-hander Aroldis Chapman, on the disabled list due to left shoulder inflammation, will begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Louisville on Monday.

"His (minimum DL) time is up at the end of month," pitching coach Bryan Price said before Sunday's 12-4 loss to the Indians. "Hopefully, he can get three outings in with Louisville and be ready to go."

Price has worked with Chapman on his delivery.

"He threw close to game speed Friday," Price said. "We're trying to get to delivery to point where it doesn't exacerbate the shoulder and cause inflammation."

Chapman was over-rotating his front shoulder, Price said.

"When they timing isn't great, it's too much to ask of the shoulder, especially with a long-armed guy and a hard thrower," he said.

Chapman seems to have corrected the problem.

"On the side and flat ground, it's as well as I've seen him throw," Price said. "With hitters and adrenaline, we'll see."
