Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman underwent a 2½-hour operation Thursday to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game.
Reds team doctor Tim Kremchek says a metal plate will be inserted in the bone and will remain there permanently. He says Chapman has a very mild concussion but no other brain injury and no injury to his eye.
Drew Storen was about 15 years old when he got a chance to talk to Dr. Timothy Kremchek. The Cincinnati Reds' medical director talked to the young right-hander about pitching — and about how it is simply not something the body is really built to do.
Instead of closing for the Cincinnati Reds, Ryan Madson will miss the 2012 season because of a torn ligament in his right elbow.
"I haven't done anything," he said. "Everything as instructed - just resting."
Dr. Timothy Kremchek has said the closer is "very lucky" he didn't have any more significant damage.
