Price: Chapman's batting practice 'looked like midseason for him'

PITTSBURGH, PA (FOX19) -

Aroldis Chapman took the mound on Wednesday in Pittsburgh, throwing batting practice behind a protective screen.

"I feel pretty good. I did not feel anything out of the ordinary. I just felt very good," Chapman told his translator.

Chapman pitched behind a screen Wednesday as a precautionary measure. However, Chapman says next time on the mound will be different.

"My next run is going to be in Atlanta and I am not planning to use [the screen]," said Chapman.

Coach Bryan Price was impressed with Chapman's performance.

"He threw all of his pitches. He was very sharp, had good velocity, good sliders and a good changeup. It looked like midseason for him," said Price.
