Aroldis Chapman gave up a walk and a hit but struck out two batters to get his 28th save of the season for the Reds on Wednesday against the Cubs.
Since surrendering four runs back on August 17, Chapman has been on top of his game, allowing just three base runners over his last five innings of work while striking out 11 in that stretch. Having now converted 28 of his first 30 save chances, Chapman remains one of the best closers to won in all of baseball, especially when owning a 85:19 K:BB rate over 43.1 innings. Whoever suggested Chapman wouldn't be the same after suffering a horrific head injury is certainly kicking themselves at this point. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Steven Souza Jr. was removed from Sunday's game with a hand injury.
Joey Butler entered the game for Souza and stayed in left field with Brandon Guyer moving from left to right. David DeJesus, who is the designated hitter Sunday, will most likely make most of the starts in right field if Souza misses any more time. Fantasy players in weekly leagues should plan on not having Souza this week, and they should look outside of Tampa for Souza's replaces. Analysis: Steve Pimental
