Aroldis Chapman shares Instagram picture of staples in his head

Aroldis Chapman is on his way to recovering from the traumatic experience of being hit in the face by a line drive during a spring training game on Wednesday.

Chapman should be able to begin throwing in about two weeks, and he could begin playing in game conditions in 4-6 weeks, the Reds’ team doctor said Thursday.

Chapman had a metal plate inserted into his head to stabilize the fractures from being hit in the face. Apparently a ton of staples were needed as part of the procedures. The Cincinnati Reds closer shared a picture on Instagram of how it looked. It’s pretty grizzly, so we’ve shared it below.

It’s really a wonder that he’ll be back so quickly.

Here’s the note Chapman posted along with the picture:

“Mi gente todo esta bien gracias a dios ya salimos de todo tipo de problema estoy aquĆ­ esperando q me den de alta”

That translates to: “My people all is well and thank god we left all kinds of problems I’m here waiting I to be discharged”
