Aroldis Chapman's rehab time is up Tuesday. The Reds aren't ready to say what's next.
"No decision," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.
Chapman had his best outing on his rehab assignment Saturday for Double-A Carolina. He went two perfect innings and struck out three. He threw 21 pitches, 14 of which were strikes.
"Good," Baker said. "That's what I asked him to do. He's got to end strong and work (his) way back here. You pitch your way back. You just don't have the name and come back. You pitch your way back here. That's what I asked (trainer) Tomas (Vera) to have him do. Now, we'll see."
Chapman could pitch again for Carolina or Louisville today or Tuesday. He could also be optioned to the minors after he's activated.
"He'll probably show up here, like guys do on their way to Louisville," Baker said.
"He could pitch (today or Monday). I haven't talked to Walt (Jocketty) yet."
Chapman went 12 scoreless appearances before his control troubles arose. He was put on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, but he's been healthy for weeks.
"If he can be the Chapman before that wild streak, we could use him big time," Baker said. "That would set us up big time."
Chapman, LeCure ready to go -- whenever
