    • Chafin retired the only batter he faced in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Rockies. Chafin has been utilized as a setup man for much of the season, but the July 31 acquisition of David Hernandez along with the late-summer promotion of Jimmie Sherfy has resulted in manager Torey Lovullo tinkering with Chafin's role. The right-hander looks like he'll be used mostly as a situational pitcher going forward, a luxury afforded to the Diamondbacks due to their deeper bullpen with the expanded rosters. Chafin has been asked to record no more than two outs in any of his last six appearances.

    • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Notches 16th hold
      By RotoWire Staff

      Chafin recorded two outs and walked a batter in the eighth inning of Sunday's11-0 win over the Giants. With the Diamondbacks nursing a 2-0 lead, Chafin entered the contest in the top of the eighth and walked Joe Panik, but he erased him on a double-play groundout from Brandon Crawford. David Hernandez came on to record the final out of the frame before the Diamondbacks' offense exploded for nine runs in the bottom half of the inning, allowing Chafin to pick up his 16th hold of the season. He trails only Archie Bradley (17) in that category among the team's relievers.

    • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Tosses scoreless inning
      By RotoWire Staff

      Chafin worked around a hit and two walks to turn in a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. Chafin is beginning to show some cracks in his armor over his last handful of appearances, surrendering four runs on eight hits and six walks in 6.1 innings. The right-hander still maintains a strong 2.52 ERA and career-best 2.9 K/BB mark for the season, however, so he should continue to stick around in a key setup role ahead of closer Fernando Rodney.

    • Chafin gave up two runs on two hits and two walks over an inning of relief in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Braves. The game was tied at 2-2 entering the top of the seventh inning, but the Braves broke it open against J.J. Hoover and Chafin, who combined to give up three home runs. The last two blasts were back-to-back solo shots given up by Chafin, who hadn't allowed a home run prior to that since his first appearance of the season. It's only the third time in his last 23 outings that Chafin has conceded a run, so despite the poor showing Tuesday, he'll remain locked into a seventh- or eighth-inning role for the Diamondbacks in most contests.

    • Chafin walked two batters and recorded one of two outs via strikeout during his appearance in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Dodgers. After Robbie Ray exited after six innings of one-run ball, Chafin took the hill for the seventh and put two batters on via walks and wasn't able to finish out the frame. Fortunately, Archie Bradley came on to strike out Justin Turner to record the final out of the inning and spare Chafin of any damage to his ERA. Thursday's outing aside, Chafin has been solid on the whole this season, maintaining a 1.86 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 39:10 K:BB over 29 innings.
