  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Notches second save in three days

    Chafin earned the save against Seattle on Monday, allowing one hit and striking out two batters over one inning.

    Chafin was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth frame and worked around a two-out single and stolen base to get the job done. He threw nine of 15 pitches for strikes and racked up multiple punchouts for his third straight outing. Chafin has picked up two saves in the past three days, with Gregory Soto recording a save of his own in between. Soto is clearly still the Tigers' primary closer, but Chafin has posted consecutive strong campaigns in a high-leverage role.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Earns second save

    Chafin gave up one hit and no walks while striking out two over a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in a 3-2 victory over the Twins on Saturday.

    The Tigers were forced to go to their bullpen in the fifth inning, and by the time they reached the ninth, Tigers manager A.J. Hinch decided to play his preferred matchups with Chafin on the mound. Chafin shut the door by throwing nine of his 13 pitches for strikes to earn his second save of the season. Gregory Soto appeared in the eighth inning and recorded a hold.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Poor fielding leads to blown save

    Chafin (1-3) blew the save and got a loss after he allowed two unearned runs on one hit and a walk in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning defeat to the Angels.

    Chafin was called upon to protect a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the 10th, but a throwing error by Javier Baez with one out in the frame derailed his outing. A run came around to score on the miscue and then Magneuris Sierra notched a walk-off RBI single later in the frame. Both runs were unearned for the left-hander, but he was tagged with his first blown save of the season. Chafin has allowed just the two unearned tallies over 6.2 innings in his last seven appearances.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Earns first 2022 win

    Chafin (1-2) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Friday against the Royals. He didn't allow any hits or walks.

    Chafin has pitched well this season for Detroit with a 2.76 ERA and 0.96 WHIP, though it took him until September to earn his first win. The lefty's setup role is perhaps more valuable in real baseball than in fantasy, though he can still provide some help with ratios and strikeouts, as he has 55 of them across just 45.2 innings this year.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Strikes out side but takes loss

    Chafin (0-2) allowed three runs on two hits while retiring just two batters to take the loss Wednesday against the Guardians. He struck out three.

    Chafin had a weird outing, as he struck out the first three batters he faced in the eighth inning. However, the final strikeout got away from catcher Eric Haase, going down as a wild pitch and allowing Luke Maile to reach first base. Chafin then allowed a single and a double before getting the hook. Alex Lange came on and allowed both inherited runners to score, which made Chafin's line look pretty rough for a guy who struck out the side. The lefty still has a solid 3.18 ERA and has been a good relief option for the Tigers this season.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Added back to roster

    Chafin (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list Monday.

    Chafin was removed from Detroit's roster for a few days because he was ineligible to pitch in Canada due to his vaccination status, but he is now back with the club. He figures to reclaim a key spot in Detroit's bullpen, though he could head elsewhere before the trade deadline hits.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Heading to restricted list

    Chafin will be placed on the restricted list ahead of the Tigers' weekend series in Toronto, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Chafin is unvaccinated and will be unable to travel to Canada for the four-game series this weekend. Bryan Garcia is joining the active roster and is expected to start Friday against the Blue Jays. Chafin has made four appearances since the All-Star break and has posted a 4.91 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 3.2 innings.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Saddled with first loss

    Chafin (0-1) allowed a run on two hits and a walk while retiring just one batter to take the loss Monday against the Twins.

    Coming on in the bottom of the ninth inning with the game tied 4-4, Chafin walked leadoff hitter Max Kepler. He then allowed a single to pinch-hitter Kyle Garlick that put runners on the corners, and an infield hit by Gio Urshela with one out gave the Twins a walkoff win. Chafin had gone four straight appearances without allowing a run, and the lefty still owns a tidy 2.89 ERA despite the hiccup, so he should remain a key relief option in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Earns third hold

    Chafin pitched a clean eighth inning with two strikeouts to earn a hold in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

    Despite some hiccups lately, Gregory Soto saw the save opportunity Saturday, and he was able to shut the door on Baltimore. Chafin has pitched pretty well with a 2.57 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 10 strikeouts across seven innings this season, which has earned him some trust in a setup role. Soto should stick as the closer for now, though Chafin could be an option at some point, along with Michael Fulmer and Will Vest.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Makes season debut Wednesday

    Chafin allowed one run on two hits across an inning of relief in Wednesday's loss to the Twins. He struck out one.

    Chafin, who suffered a groin injury in spring training, was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday but didn't enter the game. He looked rusty in his season debut Wednesday, as he allowed back-to-back doubles to start the inning, though he escaped with only the one run allowed. Despite the tough outing, Chafin should settle into a valuable bullpen role as the team's top lefty reliever outside of closer Gregory Soto.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Activated from IL

    Chafin was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    The lefty reliever signed with the Tigers this offseason, but he suffered a groin injury during spring training, which has delayed his 2022 debut. Chafin is now ready to go and will look to build off of his career year from 2021, where he produced a 1.83 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 68.2 innings with the Cubs and Athletics. He'll likely operate as a set-up man to Gregory Soto, pitching in high-leverage situations this season.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Looks good in Triple-A appearance

    Chafin made the second appearance of his minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Toledo, tossing a 1-2-3 inning and striking out two in the nine-pitch outing.

    On the heels of the sharp rehab appearance, Chafin looks as though he could be ready to return from the 10-day injured list when the Tigers return to action Tuesday in Minnesota. The Tigers foreshadowed Chafin's likely activation by optioning reliever Rony Garcia to Toledo after Sunday's loss to the Rockies, which opens up a spot on the 28-man roster.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Rehab moves to Triple-A

    Chafin (groin) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo starting Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    A strained left groin has so far prevented Chafin from making his Tigers debut, but he appears to be closing in on a return from the injured list. He threw a scoreless rehab inning for Single-A Lakeland on Thursday and could return to the Tigers when they travel to take on the Twins on Tuesday.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Rehab outing scheduled

    Chafin (groin) will make a rehab appearance for Low-A Lakeland on Thursday, Jason Beck of reports.

    Chafin missed the start of the season with a groin strain, but he's making progress and closing in on a return. If his outing Thursday goes well, he'll move up to Triple-A Toledo for two more rehab appearances. That puts his potential return date sometime in the middle of next week.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Throws another bullpen

    Chafin (groin) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Although Chafin didn't feel completely comfortable following Monday's bullpen session, he was able to throw once again several days later. He'll toss a live BP session in the coming days before making a rehab appearance at Low-A Lakeland. Chafin will then require at least one rehab outing at Triple-A Toledo, so he won't be able to rejoin the major-league club during the upcoming series against the Yankees.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Throws bullpen, still no timetable

    Chafin (groin) didn't feel completely comfortable throwing his bullpen session Monday, leaving him without a set rehab outing date, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Chafin was brought in this summer to operate as a significant piece of the Tigers' bullpen, but he's been hindered by this groin issue to open the season, leaving the team thin with options late in games. It seems as if his season debut will likely come in late April, potentially even early May.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Feeling healthier

    Chafin (groin) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Chafin suffered a groin strain late in spring training, though he is reportedly feeling much healthier. He may need to go on a rehab outing prior to being activated given that he was able to throw only two exhibition innings before suffering the injury.
