BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 The Cubs picked up Chapman from the Braves with Arodys Vizcaino as part of their effort to sell off every usable piece they could at the trade deadline—in this case Reed Johnson and Paul Maholm—and they almost immediately put him into service in the majors. Chapman pitched well for 12 innings, but the Cubs should be cautious about expecting him to maintain that level of performance going forward. His minor-league numbers are pedestrian and his fastball sits in the high 80s.
2012 Taken in the 16th round of the 2005 draft, Chapman’s control issues made him an afterthought until 2011. In 52 games between Double-A and Triple-A, Chapman showed improved control. He is a short righty with a fastball that can sneak into the mid-90s and a plus changeup. Should Chapman keep throwing strikes, he will find his way into the majors before the 2012 season ends.
