The Reds had hoped to have Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman in majors by now. But they decided to give him more time in Triple-A.
Were going to wait until Sept. 1, Walt Jocketty said. That will give him a chance to stabilize in the bullpen and get more experience. Were trying to find the right time.
Chapman will be eligible for the playoffs.
We have two extra spots because we have two players on the 60-man disabled list, Jocketty said.
