Aroldis Chapman to be optioned to Louisville

3 Comments

John Fay reports that Aroldis Chapman will not be activated from the disabled list today, but rather, will be optioned to Triple-A Louisville.

Chapman had another nice outing for Louisville yesterday, but the Reds likely want to make sure that’s more the norm than his horrific performances from earlier in his rehab stint and for the Reds before he went on the DL.

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
