“Socks Up Kid” Jaye Chapman in his MLB Debut…with the Cubs.

Always liked watching this guy pitch when he was in the Braves system, and wasn't very happy he was one who left our organization in the Cubs trade. But hey, he probably made it to the Bigs faster, and I'm sure that made him happy. :)

The Benchwarmers

I waded through about 5 minutes of clips from "The Benchwarmers" trying to find something funny for this post. 5 minutes I'll never recover... Anyway, the Cubs are taking advantage of the roster expansion with a few call-ups. The lucky bastards so far include: (Drumroll) Dave Sappelt, OF Crazy Legs Campana, OF Adrian Cardenas, INF Miguel Socolovich, RHP Jaye Chapman...

The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by The Ugandan Ministry of Health

Iowa The Greg of Rohan was 2-4 with a HR. Jaye Chapman lowered his ERA to 8.64 by working a clean inning. Smokies Jae Hoon Ha hit his 7th HR of the year and is batting .405/.476/.649 in his last 10. He added an OF assist for fun. Ha has a .995 OPS in August and I can't remember him having a better month than this in his career.  Daytona Need we even say anything? Another PPD...

The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by City Wok

Iowa Ty'Relle Harris struck out 5 in 6 IP.

Maholm calls Braves 'landing spot No. 1 for me'

Left-hander Paul Maholm is settling in with the Braves, a team he says was ''landing spot No. 1 for me'' if he had to be traded from the Cubs. The Braves acquired Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson from Chicago for right-handers Arodys Vizcaino and Jaye Chapman on Monday night. Maholm joined the Braves Wednesday. Johnson is starting in right field in Wednesday night...

Cubs acquired 2 of top 10 prospects moved at the deadline

According to Baseball America, the Cubs acquired 2 of the top 10 prospects moved at or near the trade deadline.  3. Arodys Vizcaino, rhp, Cubs. Chicago has very little advanced young pitching, so it was willing to take the sidelined Vizcaino and throw-in Jaye Chapman from the Braves in exchange for Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson. Considered untouchable a year ago, Vizcaino had a...

The Verdict

Here are BP's and BA's take on the prospects the Cubs acquired over the last 2 days ranked by potential awesomeness. Arodys Vizcaino (RHP) - 21 year old Baseball America: Vizcaino possesses the raw stuff to justify the hype, but also the injury history to explain why the Yankees and Braves were willing to trade him. He had Tommy John surgery toward the end of spring training...

New Cub Jaye Chapman

I had hoped to turn these player intros our at a pace today so we could be ready for any additional trades if the Cubs make them so here's another.  Along with Arodys Vizcaino who we'll discuss in more detail later, the Cubs also acquired 25 year old RHP Jaye Chapman from the Braves for Reed Johnson and Paul Maholm. He was drafted in the 16th round in 2005 and isn't...

Braves Scoop Up Useful Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson

The Braves are taking a long-term risk for a short-term gain in trading Arodys Vizcaino and Jaye Chapman for Reed Johnson and Paul Maholm. The most talented player in the deal is obviously Arodys Vizcaino, but he also comes with a ton of question marks. Johnson and Maholm will be asked to do exactly what they did in Chicago. Johnson will be a spot starter in the outfield against...

2012 Player Preview: Jaye Chapman

Jaye Chapman is a guy who I think is going to be seriously considered for a slot in the major league bullpen this spring. Chapman had a fantastic season, split between Mississippi and Gwinnett. Between the two levels, he struck out 77 while walking 31 in 68 1/3 innings. While the walk rate is a little high, it's not at the point of someone like Billy Bullock's, which is just...
