Astros optioned LHP Kevin Chapman to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Chapman was only up with the big club for one day, allowing two runs over two relief innings. He's dominated at Triple-A this year (0.94 ERA and 37/21 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings) but has struggled in his time in the majors.

Astros recalled LHP Kevin Chapman from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Chapman allowed five runs in 3 2/3 innings in a brief stint with the Astros back in April and owns a 0.94 ERA and 37/21 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. Control isn't his strong suit, but he'll pitch in a left-handed specialist role in his return to the big club.

Astros optioned LHP Kevin Chapman to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Chapman had allowed five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings of relief this season for Houston. The 26-year-old lefty should get another shot later in the summer.

Kevin Chapman surrendered three runs and five hits in his inning of relief versus the Braves on Monday.

The bad day comes as Chapman appeared close to locking up a spot in Houston's pen. It could have been even worse had he not picked Jordan Schafer off first base. Prior to today, Chapman had allowed one hit in 4 1/3 scoreless innings this spring. If he finishes strong from here, he will get his bullpen spot and he might even be in the mix for saves if none of the right-handers set themselves apart.

Astros purchased the contract of LHP Kevin Chapman from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Chapman has registered a decent 3.20 ERA and 61/36 K/BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old will serve as a middle reliever.

Astros acquired LHP Kevin Chapman and a player to be named from the Royals for C Humberto Quintero and OF Jason Bourgeois.

Jason Castro is healthy and the Astros added Chris Snyder as a backup over the winter, so cashing in on Quintero made sense. J.B. Shuck or Justin Ruggiano are now likely to replace Bourgeois on the Astros' bench. Chapman has a 5.06 ERA in the minors and has struggled with his command and control, but he also throws hard and has averaged 12.4 K/9. The 24-year-old left-hander has a chance to make it as middle reliever.
