CHICAGO (AP) Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman has been cleared to throw batting practice for the first time since he was hit in the face by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19.

Chapman sustained fractures of his nose and and a bone above his left eye when hit by the drive off the bat of Kansas City's Salvador Perez.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday he wasn't sure exactly when Chapman will throw but said it likely will be during the team's 10-game trip that ends April 27.
