Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman felt "normal" Thursday in his first game action since suffering a head injury in March.
The two-time All-Star threw two pitches at 101 mph, with another two clocked at 100 and four at 99, in his rehab start with Class A Dayton, MLB.com reported.
The left-hander was hit on the forehead by a line drive during a spring training game in Arizona on March 19.
Chapman was one of eight Reds who opened the season on the disabled list, the most in the majors.
Chapman finished with 38 saves for the Reds in each of the past two seasons.
