Jocketty has not seen Chapman pitch in person since Spring Training, but has been watching a few of his outings online and of course, gets the reports from Louisville and the organization's scouts.
The conclusions from the Reds are that Chapman is more refined since spring, but still has work to do to be ready for the Majors.
"He has improved. [Special assistant] Mario Soto has told me he's improved each time out," Jocketty said. "He still needs to get better command of some of his pitches. He needs to be more efficient. He's still learning the whole game -- the backing up bases and things like that.
"He's got to get into the sixth and seventh innings, throwing 100-110 pitches."
