Chapman pitched 21 and 1/3 innings for the Astros in 2014, putting up a 4.64 ERA and a WHIP of 1.547. While he's shown the ability to record solid numbers in the minors, the lefty isn't likely to see many high-leverage situations in the majors until he refines his control.

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.

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.
Thu, Aug 8, 2013 02:14:00 PM

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.
