CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Reds closer Aroldis Chapman threw 25 pitches during batting practice on Tuesday, passing the final test before he can begin a rehabilitation stint in the minors. Chapman likely will pitch at Class A Dayton on Thursday in his first time in a game since suffering a head injury. Hes hoping to be activated after four or five appearances in the minors. "It went very good," Chapman said, with trainer Tomas Vera translating. "All my pitches were the way I wanted." The left-hander was hit on the forehead by a line drive during a spring training game in Arizona on March 19. He had a plate inserted above his left eye and nose to help fractures heal. Chapman was one of eight Reds who opened the season on the disabled list, the most in the majors. Jonathan Broxton is closing games in his absence. Chapman has thrown batting practice without a protective screen. He said theres no concern when he sees a batter hit one of his pitches. "I feel normal," he said. "I feel the way I was before I got hit with the ball." Manager Bryan Price thinks Chapman needs only a few games in the minors to get ready for his return. Chapman suggested four or five would be sufficient. Chapman threw the equivalent of one inning to Reds hitters, working more on his changeup and slider. "I know I have the fastball," he said. "Im feeling I have the fastball. Im working with the breaking pitches." Outfielder Roger Bernadina saw a couple of fastballs at the outset from Chapman and couldnt connect. "I didnt see the first two," Bernadina said. Michael Gallup Jersey .

The exuberant celebrations of the Roma players and coach Rudi Garcia demonstrated precisely how important the goal was from the 83-minute replacement. Leading Serie A goalscorer Ciro Immobile scored a stunning volley for Torino to cancel out Mattia Destros opener. Second-placed Roma moved 11 points behind Juventus. Antonio Contes side can restore its 14-point advantage with a win at home to Parma on Wednesday -- although it will have then played a game more than Roma. Garcias team moved nine points clear of third-placed Napoli. "I feel so emotional, I had always dreamed of scoring a goal under the Curva Sud and its finally happened after two years," a clearly exhausted Florenzi said. Immobile again boosted his chances of being included in Italys World Cup squad as he scored his 17th league goal of the season in front of national team coach Cesare Prandelli. "The goal was nnice, but unfortunately it didnt help us," Immobile said.dddddddddddd It was Roma captain Francesco Tottis 700th appearance for the club where he has spent his entire career. Torino goalkeeper Daniele Padelli had kept his side in the match with a number of fine saves, including a fantastic double stop to first deny Destro from point-blank range before turning Miralem Pjanics follow-up round his right post. Destro broke the deadlock four minutes from halftime, although he was marginally offside when he collected Gervinhos through ball, turned and fired past Padelli at full stretch. Immobile levelled seven minutes after the break with an extraordinary volley into the far side of the net from Giuseppe Vives long ball. The 24-year-old, who scored a hat-trick against Livorno at the weekend, now has one more goal than Juventus striker Carlos Tevez. Both sides had chances to take the lead, but it was Roma that took the points after another good through ball from Gervinho to Florenzi, who smashed a shot into the far corner.
