Biloxi Shuckers closer Jaye Chapman was promoted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday after dominating the Southern League through the first month of the season.
Chapman had a Southern League-leading 10 saves in 12 appearances this season. The Panama City, Fla., native allowed only two hits in 11.1 innings and had an ERA of 0.00.
Never miss a local story.
Chapman showed impressive control, striking out 15 and walking none.
Chapman is looking to get back to the big leagues after he underwent double-hip surgery in 2013. He had a 3.75 ERA in 14 appearances with the Chicago Cubs in 2012.
