Chapman, Broxton likely unavailable
More than a few Reds players have watery eyes and irritated noses because of allergies on Tuesday
“We’ve got about 12-13 guys that have allergies,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.
One of them is closer Aroldis Chapman.
“Chapman looked like hell. I don’t think he’s available tonight,” Baker said. “I don’t know if [Jonathan] Broxton is available tonight. We may have to close with somebody else. He’s gone two days in a row and he threw 30 pitches the day before. I was a little apprehensive about using him last night. I was little apprehensive about using him last night. It’s not the innings sometimes, but the workload of that inning.”
Chapman has also worked two days in a row and earned back-to-back saves.
