Aroldis Champan could be out for at least a month, if not more, after sustaining a fracture above his left eye Wednesday.
Chapman took a direct hit to the head on a liner by Salvador Perez on Wednesday night. He is in the hospital currently and will have numerous scans to make sure his brain swelling is under control. As Brandon McCarthy who wend through a very similar injury tweeted this evening: all reporting at this point means zilch, until he gets a scan. Chapman won't be out of the woods for at least 48 hours and won't be back on the mound for a very long time after this incident.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
