The Cincinnati Reds removed Aroldis Chapman in the middle of an inning during an exhibition game on Tuesday, but it turned out to simply be a miscommunication.
Chapman left after recording only one out in the fifth inning.
He retired the lone batter he faced on a routine grounder to second, but the trainers and coaches came out to the mound. Chapman threw two practice pitches but was removed.
"We went out there to check on him and the hamstring came up, and just with that history we were extra cautious," Bryan Price said of Chapman, who dealt with an injured hamstring last season. "And by the sounds of it, it may be a non-issue completely."
