Why is Aroldis Chapman pitching before his 30 day suspension?

Aroldis Chapman worked up a pretty good sweat pitching in yesterday's Yankee exhibition game in Florida. Chapman will serve a 30 day suspension starting opening day. So why is he preparing along with the pitchers who are expected to be ready on opening day?

If we assume that 30 days is plenty of time for a pitcher, especially one who usually throws only individual innings in fewer than 70 games, to get ready for the regular season, shouldn't Chapman start his preparation around the time that his suspension begins? What the heck?
