      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Hurls scoreless inning

      Andrew Chafin walked one and struck out one over a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Cubs.Chafin has not allowed a run over his last five outings, a stretch that includes two holds. He's mostly a lefty specialist and often throws less than an inning, which makes it difficult to find a role for him in a fantasy lineup.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Gets one big out

      Andrew Chafin retired the lone batter he faced in Friday's 15-8 win over the Red Sox.Chafin was called on at the most critical juncture and got the left-handed-hitting Rafael Devers in the sixth inning with the bases loaded. Facing one or two lefties has become Chafin's role, and he filled it nicely Friday, giving Devers nothing to hit and inducing a meekly hit groundball back to the mound. It may be a stretch to call any moment in a 15-8 game a high-leverage spot, but one poorly located pitch would have cut the Arizona Diamondbacks' lead to two while giving Boston momentum. Instead, Chafin got the one batter he needed to, called it a night, and the Diamondbacks tacked on another eight runs before it was over.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Fires clean inning

The first three members of that group pitched Saturday and threw the ball well; Chafin, Holland and Hirano combined for three scoreless innings. Those are the kinds of things a manager looks for as the team gears up for the regular season.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Inks deal with Arizona

      Andrew Chafin signed a one-year, $1.945 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.Chafin had a good year out of the bullpen for the Diamondbacks in 2018, posting a 3.10 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 9.7 K/9 across 49.1 innings. The 28-year-old's 2.65 FIP also suggests some room for improvement as he should once again serve as a situational left-hander for Arizona.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Struggling to find strike zone

      Andrew Chafin walked the lone batter he faced on five pitches during Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Rockies.Chafin has been the Arizona Diamondbacks' top choice for lefty-on-lefty matchups for the bulk of the season, but his recent struggles may have resulted in Jake Diekman surpassing him in the bullpen hierarchy. The 28-year-old has walked five of the past seven batters he has faced, eliminating any utility he offers in his situational role. Manager Torey Lovullo may want Chafin to iron out his control problems in lower-leverage spots before turning to him again late in close games.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Claims 13th hold

      Andrew Chafin was credited with his 13th hold of the season after retiring the lone batter he faced in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Mariners.Chafin was the first reliever summoned from the bullpen after starter Zack Greinke exited with two outs and two runners on in the top of the seventh inning. As per usual, Chafin aced the lefty-on-lefty matchup with Robinson Cano, inducing an inning-ending groundout in five pitches to end the Seattle threat. Chafin owns a 2.13 ERA and 9.4 K/9 for the season, but the impact of that production has been limited due to his low innings count, as he's frequently been called upon to face only one or two hitters over his 61 appearances.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Lowers ERA to 1.51

      Andrew Chafin retired two of the three batters he faced in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Rockies.Chafin allowed a leadoff single to Charlie Blackmon in the top of the ninth inning, then induced a double-play ball before giving way to Silvino Bracho, who got Nolan Arenado to ground out to end the game.

      Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Notches pair of strikeouts

      Andrew Chafin struck out both of the hitters he faced in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Padres in 16 innings.Chafin has yielded runs in just three of his last 31 appearances, producing a 1.21 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 over that stretch. The top lefty in the Arizona bullpen, Chafin is at his best against same-handed hitters, but he's been doing a credible job of limiting the damage versus right-handed bats as well. Over 58 at-bats this season, the southpaw has limited right-handed hitters to a .190/.284/.293 slash line.
