Chapman throws off mound for 1st time

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Reds closer Aroldis Chapman threw off a mound on Monday for the first time since he was hit in the forehead by a line drive during spring training.

The left-hander threw 25 pitches in the bullpen before Cincinnati opened a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Reds hope to have him back sometime in May.

Chapman sustained fractures above his left eye and his nose when he was hit by a liner on March 19. He had a plate inserted in the forehead the next day. He has to be careful not to get hit in the forehead while it heals.
Chapman said his arm felt good. He'll throw in the bullpen a few more times before pitching to Reds hitters.
