Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman hit in face by line drive Published: March 20, 2014

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman remains hospitalized with broken bones after taking a line drive off the face in a Wednesday spring training game.

Chapman, one of the hardest throwers in Major League Baseball, tossed a 99-mph pitch and was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez.

Doctors expect a complete recovery for Chapman, but he's not expected to pitch for six to eight weeks.
