2014

After averaging 11.0 K/9 throughout his minor league career, Chapman made his major league debut last July and appeared in 25 games (20.1 innings) out of the bullpen for the Astros. The 25-year-old lefty issued 13 free passes (5.8 BB/9) and saw his K/9 dip to 6.6, but an 88 percent strand rate kept his ERA under 2.00. Chapman needs to improve his control, but he's likely to remain a part of the Astros' bullpen based on his strikeout potential alone. Without an established option locked in to close out games, it would be wise to closely monitor the peripherals of the relievers in the Houston bullpen throughout the season to see if a suitable internal candidate emerges with the ability to secure the job.
