The Cincinnati Reds will spend the offseason deciding what role Aroldis Chapman will have with the team next season.

“We haven’t made a decision on Chapman as a starter or as a reliever,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said, according Reds.mlb.com. “We’re talking about it. It depends on if we re-sign [Jonathan] Broxton and [Ryan] Madson. Or if we get another closer.”

Chapman spent last season as the Reds’ closer going 5-5 with a 1.51 ERA and tying for third in the National League with 38 saves in 43 attempts. He set the franchise single-season record 27 consecutive saves and struck out 122 batters while only walking 23.
