Chapman walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning for his 35th save Monday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman has saved eight games in as many opportunities in 11 appearances dating back to August 23. He owns a ridiculous 22:7 K:BB in 11.2 innings in that stretch as he remains one of the nastiest relievers in the game.

Chapman (1-1) pitched a perfect 10th inning against the Brewers on Friday, striking out the side on 11 pitches.

EDGE Analysis

After the Cubs had tied the game in the ninth on an Addison Russell infield single, Chapman was called on in the 10th to keep things knotted at 4-4. He complied in impressive fashion, first mowing down the pinch-hitting Jake Elmore, as well as Ryan Braun and Chris Carter. The 28-year-old has been outstanding over his last 10 appearances, giving up just a single earned run over the 10.2 innings covering that span, and successfully converting all seven of his save opportunities.

Chapman worked around a walk to record his 34th save Monday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman is now up to 14 saves with the Cubs and has converted seven in a row. He has gone 9.2 innings since his last blown save and has allowed just one run with a ridiculous 17:6 K:BB in that stretch. He remains one of the nastiest relievers in baseball, and although he is walking a lot of batters of late, it doesn't matter if opposing batters can't make contact.

Chapman nailed down his 33rd save of the season Friday versus the Astros, striking out one in a perfect inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman was as efficient as one could ask for Friday, as he retired the side on just six pitches. He has now thrown been scored upon just once 8.2 innings, going 6-for-6 in save opportunities during that time, and he continues to perform as effectively as any fantasy reliever going down the stretch.

Chapman allowed a run on two hits and a walk, but struck out two and finished off the Pirates for his 32nd save Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman pitched in all three games of this series, so perhaps he was tired or perhaps the Pirates were on to him a little -- maybe both. Either way, this was just his third earned run allowed in 19 appearances since being traded to Chicago, and he now has a 28:5 K:BB over 16.2 innings as a Cub.

Chapman worked around a hit with a pair of strikeouts in a scoreless inning to earn his 30th save of the season Friday versus the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman allowed a weak single to lead off his inning of work, but he was his usual dominant self after and threw 13 of 19 pitches for strikes. He blew a save last Friday in Colorado, but he has rattled off three straight conversions and is now the owner of a 1.80 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP.

Chapman allowed a hit and struck out the side to secure his 29th save of the season Wednesday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Since blowing the save and being tagged with his only loss of the year last Friday, Chapman has rebounded nicely by locking down two saves while striking out four in his last two appearances. Since joining the Cubs, he's 9-for-11 in save opportunities and has surrendered just two earned runs in 15 games with the team.

Chapman walked two batters but managed to clean up a two-out save Tuesday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman's services were only needed because Felix Pena couldn't nail down the game with a 5-0 lead. Chapman had to get warmed up in a hurry and threw 10 balls against just nine strikes, but he got two swings and misses, including one to strikeout Christian Bethancourt to end the game. He owns a 1.13 ERA with 12 strikeouts in eight innings this month, with seven saves in eight chances.

Chapman is presumably available out of the Cubs' bullpen Monday after resting the previous two days.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported Saturday that Chapman would get that night and Sunday off after throwing four times -- including both ends of a doubleheader -- in the prior four days, and he was not summoned from the bullpen either day as expected. Chapman did say Saturday that he would be good to go for Monday's game, so with his rest period behind him, expect him to be used in a save situation if one arises in Monday's matchup with the Padres.
