Aroldis Chapman got hit in the face by a line drive earlier this week. The Reds pitcher is one of the hardest throwers in baseball having a fastball recorded 103 MPH.
Earlier this week he got hit in the face by a line drive and was carried off by a stretcher. The ball he threw was clocked at 99 MPH. Chapman recently underwent a procedure to insert a titanium plate in his head. He should be throwing in 10-14 days and back in game conditions in 4-6 weeks.
Here’s a photo that he just instagrammed of the staples in his head. (Warning, this is graphic)
