Chapman threw one with a screen in front of him Wednesday and said it was "normal, nothing out of the ordinary." His session over the weekend will be without a screen, and he'll then be cleared for game action. Chapman is expected to rejoin the Reds' bullpen in mid-May.
Phillies activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 15-day disabled list.
Hamels will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Dodgers. While it's not an ideal first matchup, the left-hander held a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 17 innings during his rehab assignment and can be safely penciled into fantasy lineups from the get-go.
