CINCINNATI (WKYT) — Cincinnati Reds' closer Aroldis Chapman threw off the mound for the first time since he was hit in the face by a line drive during spring training. Chapman threw 25 pitches in the bullpen and appeared to have no problems with velocity or control.

"I feel really good, I feel everything went well," Chapman said through interpreter and Reds assistant trainer Tomas Vera. "Everything felt good, my fastball was good, my command was good. The breaking pitches were good. Everything was good, I feel really good."

The next step for Chapman depends on how his body responds to Monday's work. Chapman, more than likely, will throw more bullpen sessions before throwing live batting practice or hitters.

There is not a timetable for Chapman's return.
