JJ Hoover got the final three outs of Wednesday's win against the Pirates, recording his first save of the season.
Regular closer Aroldis Chapman was placed on the paternity leave list on Monday and is expected to rejoin the team on Thursday. Hoover had no issue carving through the bottom of the Pirates' lineup, getting Jordy Mercer to line out, then recording back-to-back strikeouts of Chris Stewart and Jung Ho Kang. Chapman has been bandied about in trade rumors, so Hoover's performance Wednesday is certainly not for nothing -- he could become the Reds' eventual closer if Chapman were to be dealt.
