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.
