Rest for Chapman

Cincinnati (Fox 19) - Reds fireballer Aroldis Chapman will take a few days off with inflammation in his left shoulder.  Dusty Baker said Friday Chapman should be ok but that handling the 23 year old Cuban is a learning process for both sides.

Chapman threw in four of the last five games on the Reds recent road trip and left mid-inning in San Diego on Wednesday after just ten pitches.  According to catcher Ramon Hernandez, Chapman was reluctant to tell anyone that his shoulder was bothering him - something Baker attributes to Chapman's Cuban upbringing.
