Aroldis Chapman was back on the mound Monday for the first time since being hit in the face by a line-drive in spring training.
Chapman had his first bullpen session Monday prior to the Reds taking on the Pirates at Great American Ballpark.
"Everything went well. My fast ball looked good, my breaking pitch was good," said Chapman. "Everything feels great. I feel really well."
Aside from feeling a little swelling between the eyebrows, the LHP stated last week he is feeling no symptoms.
Chapman adds that he has no mental anguish when it comes to returning to the mound. He says he is often asked about his mental state.
"I know me, I know I'll be fine," Chapman said.
