Chance will still be with the AA Reading Phillies this year....probably middle relief again with maybe a spot start....he needs to get off to a good start if he wants a shot at moving up to AAA Lehigh Valley....Chapman is no spring chicken any more....he's now 27 yrs old..... :worried:

Chance gets his first opportunity of the season in Game two friday night and threw a scoreless inning in a 7-5 Phillies win at Portland, ME.....Chappy gave up a hit and walked one batter...he also had one K....a decent start to a big season for Chapman if he's going to remain a part of the Phillies organization... :)

Injuries in the Phila. Phillies bullpen have necessitated bringing up 3 guys from AAA Lehigh Valley and the trickle down effect has our guy Chance Chapman PROMOTED TO AAA Lehigh Valley for the first time!!!... :clap: ....he had a tough first outing giving up 3 runs (only 1 earned) but last night came in and pitched 1.1 scoreless innings....so Chappy is now an Iron Pig and they play out of Allentown, PA about 2 hrs north of Philly....TheEagleman will keep a watch on his progress....he could go back down when and if the Phillies bullpen gets healthy.... :geek:

Big performance by Chance last night as the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs shut out the Pawtucket Red Sox by 3-0.....Chapman comes in and throws four innings of no hit, no walk, no run baseball...12 up and 12 down with 3 Ks.....he gets his first AAA win to go 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA....with another starter from the Iron Pigs called up by the Phillies yesterday(Vance Worley who shut out the Mets last night), Chance will have a lot of opportunity to pitch at Lehigh Valley and maybe even get a start or two due to all the call ups....great opportunity for the ORU kid..... :clap::wink::clap:

Chance has had an up and down week...after getting that first win last friday night he came on in the 10th inning of a tie game vs. Buffalo on Monday night and gave up a game losing 2 run bomb...Chappy took took the loss 6-4....last night he pitched a scoreless 9th inning in a 10-3 Iron Pig win....Chapman is now 1-1 with a 2.89 ERA.... :ugeek:

The Iron Pigs were on TV here in Philly Monday night and TheEagleman got an opportunity to see Chance pitch two scoreless innings in a 12-2 win at Gwinnett in Georgia....#27 looked very good giving up only 1 hit and 1 walk with 2 Ks....his ERA at the AAA level drops to 4.30.... :smile:

Chance's last two outings in the past week for Lehigh Valley have been outstanding....he's pitched 4 scoreless innings with 5 Ks and only given up two hits....ERA down to 4.03 after topping 5.00 back in May....The Iron Pigs are hot and in first place in the AAA International League which is the best league in the minors.... :smile:

CC came in during the 9th last night to bail the Iron Pigs out of trouble vs. Louisville but they lost 8-7....Chance's scoreless 1/3 of an inning drops his ERA to 3.99 at the AAA level.... :ugeek:

Chance got bombed last night vs. Louisville...he came on in relief for 3 innings and gave up 6 runs on 6 hits...his ERA balloons to 5.29.....the Iron Pigs actually came back and won 8-7 but this was not a good night for our boy Chappy.... :sad::cry::n:

Not so good news....that 6 run shellacking that Chance took the other night didn't help his cause....Chapman has been demoted back the the AA Reading Phillies.....about the only good thing is that TheEagleman might be able to see him pitch when the Phillies come to Trenton next month to play the Yankees AA Affiliate....hopefully, Chappy can get things turned around and get back to AAA next season... :'( :worried: :'(

Chance made his first appearance since coming back to AA in last night's 2-1 loss vs. New Britain....he threw a scoreless inning to keep his ERA at Reading at 0.00 in 4 appearances....hopefully, Chappy can get his confidence back while in Reading and move back to AAA next season.....TheEagleman has tickets to see the Reading Phillies when they come to Trenton on 7/17....maybe we will get an opportunity to see Chance pitch.... :ugeek:

Two more scoreless innings for Chapman on Monday night in a 5-4 Phillies loss to the Erie Seawolves....Chance gave up 2 hits and had 2 Ks....so his ERA at AA Reading remains 0.00 in 6 appearances this season..... :up:

Chapman was put on the DL last week....not sure why but he hasn't pitched in over a week.....Chance was also on the shelf for about a month last season and never really got things turned around after that....TheEagleman was hoping he was on the right road back in May when Chappy got promoted to AAA but it didn't work out....not sure what's going to happen next.... :worried::sweat::worried:

Chance is off the DL....activated yesterday but I don't think he's been in a game yet unless he pitched in tonight's 13-2 win at Trenton....TheEagleman will be in attendence at tomorrow's Reading-Trenton game and hope to see Chapman in action....the teams have played seven times in the past 10 days with the Phillies winning 5 of those 7.... :ugeek:
