Position: P      Born: Feb 19, 1988      Bats: Left      Throws: Left

Acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Royals in March of 2012, Chapman made his major league debut with the Astros in 2013. The left-handed reliever spent most of the next three seasons at the AAA level while also compiling a 3.26 ERA in 47 innings with Houston. Equipped with a fastball averaging 93 m.p.h., control issues have prevented Chapman from enjoying sustained success in the big leagues.
