In his first appearance on the mound after dealing with shoulder soreness, Aroldis Chapman threw a perfect inning with two strikeouts against the Braves on Thursday.
Chapman has been out of action since allowed four walks in his outing on Sunday, but did not show any side effects from his shoulder soreness. He has converted 26 of his 28 chances in 2014 while maintaining a 2.75 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 76 strikeouts over 39.1 innings. Expect his role to be back to normal in the upcoming days.

Aaron Harang won't pitch Wednesday as he's working on some mechanical issues.
It should be interesting to see the results of these tweaks. Harang's season last year was nothing short of surprising as he posted a career-best 3,57 ERA. His lost a little off his K/BB ratio, but overall, the season was a big success for him. Can he maintain it? It's going to be tough in a park like Philly's and a ground ball rate below 40-percent. He's not going to be someone to draft, but keep an eye on his early and maybe think about adding him early if he has a nice run to open the season. Analysis: Howard Bender
