Having Chapman go out and fail miserably time after time isn't going to help his mindset. Teddy Power helped him before and he may help him again. Price has obviously not found the answer.
He's been sent to the DL due to shoulder inflammation according to FSO. Jordan Smith will take his place.
Ken Rosenthal article on Chapman:
http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/A...d-notes-051611A veteran scout is adamant:
The Reds need to demote left-hander Aroldis Chapman and make him a starter.
“As a reliever, you put him in too tight a box,” the scout says. “As a starter, he can stretch it out a little bit and improve his command.”
I miss Adam Dunn.

Reds put LHP Chapman on DL with inflamed shoulder
By JOE KAY, AP Baseball Writer 1 hour, 14 minutes ago
CINCINNATI (AP)—Left-hander Aroldis Chapman(notes) had an MRI exam on Monday that found inflammation in his pitching shoulder, sending the Cincinnati Reds reliever to the 15-day disabled list.
The Reds think the problem contributed to his wildness in his last few appearances. Chapman walked 12 batters and retired only four in his last four outings. Twice, he left the game without getting anyone out.
