After Sunday's 9-7 win over the Cardinals, the Cincinnati Reds had an issue to address. How much longer could they afford to wait for Aroldis Chapman(notes) to find his control?
They'll have at least two weeks to work with whatever mechanical issues might be plaguing Chapman. But it also appears that injuries were part of the problem. The Reds put him on the 15-day disabled list Monday afternoon with shoulder inflammation.
While Sunday's win increased the Reds' NL Central lead to 1 1/2 games, it came almost in spite of Chapman. Unable to find the strike zone, he looked ready to hand the game to the Cardinals.
