Aroldis Chapman Shares Post-Surgery Photo Of His Stapled Head

Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman Instagrammed this photo of the aftermath of his surgery, to treat injuries suffered when he was struck in the face by a line drive on Wednesday night.


He is now a cyborg: The staples are from a 2.5-hour procedure that included implanting a titanium plate to stabilize a fracture above his eye. He's reportedly in high spirits and should be released from the hospital this weekend, and could return to the field in six to eight weeks.
