 GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Aroldis Chapman was one of baseball's best closers in his first try at it, helping the Cincinnati Reds win the NL Central.
He's getting a chance to win a spot in the rotation this spring, but manager Dusty Baker is keeping an open mind about moving Chapman back to the bullpen in an emergency.
The hard-throwing lefty saved 38 games last season in his first experience as a closer. He was getting ready to be a starter during spring training last year when closer Ryan Madson got hurt, forcing Baker to scramble. He eased Chapman into a setup role, then promoted him to closer as he continued to pitch well.
General manager Walt Jocketty would like to have a left-hander in the rotation.
