Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday that he's unlikely to make a closer while Aroldis Chapman is on the disabled list with an injury. Chapman underwent successful surgery on Thursday to repair fractures around his nose and left eye after being hit in the face by a Salvador Perez line drive on Wednesday. He's expected to miss at least the first month of the season.

With Jonathan Broxton (forearm) and Sean Marshall (shoulder) also headed for the DL to start the season, Price noted that JJ Hoover, Logan Ondrusek, Manny parra and Sam LeCure are all options for saves. Hoover is likely to receive the first opportunity to earn the closer job with Chapman out.

In more frustrating news for Cincinnati, Price said Friday that starter Mat Latos (knee) will likely begin the season on the disabled list as well. That said, he coul dbe ready on April 6 when the Reds need a fifth starter. He pitched in a minor league game on Wednesday and will throw in another one soon.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Reds are now 25/1 to win the 2014 World Series after opening with 16/1 odds. They're also 10/1 to win the NL pennant at 2014.
