GOODYEAR, AZ (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Reds powerhouse pitcher Aroldis Chapman is letting the world in on his recovery, sharing pictures on Friday from his hospital room.

One of them shows the multiple staples traversing his head after a surgery to repair multiple fractures in his face.

Chapman had a titanium plate and screws inserted into his head after being hit by a line drive in the face during Wednesday's game against the Kansas City Royals.

Despite the hit which caused onlookers to cringe in sympathy, the Reds closer could be pitching from the mound in 4-6 weeks, according to the Reds' team doctor.

Chapman also posted a message to his followers in his native Spanish, saying, "Mi gente todo esta bien gracias a dios ya salimos de todo tipo de problema estoy aquí esperando q me den de alta," which translates to, "My people, all is well and I am thankful to God that my problems are behind me. I'm waiting to be discharged."
