Cubs non-tendered RHP Jaye Chapman.

Chapman was acquired from the Braves in the mid-season deal for Paul Maholm. He posted a 3.75 ERA and 12/10 K/BB ratio in 12 innings for the Cubs in 2012. While he has battled control problems in the past, he could still develop into a solid middle reliever.

Cubs recalled RHP Jaye Chapman from Double-A Tennessee.

The Cubs acquired Chapman from the Braves in late July in a four-team trade that sent Paul Maholm to Atlanta. The right-hander won't hold any fantasy value this year.

Cubs acquired RHPs Jaye Chapman and Arodys Vizcaino from the Braves for LHP Paul Maholm, OF Reed Johnson and cash considerations.

Chapman, a 25-year-old reliever, is 3-6 with a 3.52 ERA at Triple-A Gwinnett this year and has a 3.95 ERA and 9.6 K/9 over parts of seven seasons in the minors. He could turn into a solid bullpen fixture at Wrigley eventually, but will function in this trade as a lower-probability lottery ticket next to the prize that is Arodys Vizcaino.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Cubs will get minor league right-hander Jaye Chapman from the Braves as part of the deal for Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Cubs will also get prospect right-hander Arodys Vizcaino, who is coming off Tommy John surgery. Chapman, a 25-year-old reliever, has a 3.95 ERA and 9.6 K/9 over parts of seven seasons in the minors. He could turn into a useful bullpen piece.

Braves optioned RHPs Jaye Chapman, J.J. Hoover and Todd Redmond, LHPs Sean Gilmartin and Luis Avilan and C Evan Gattis to Triple-A Gwinnett.

There are some intriguing arms among the bunch, but none of them had a real shot to crack the Opening Day roster. Chapman, Avilan and Hoover could all factor into the team's bullpen equation at some point this season, though.
