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.... See More ...

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Rehab outing scheduled
Chafin (groin) will make a rehab appearance for Low-A Lakeland on Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com 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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Placed on injured list
Chafin (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Chafin was diagnosed with a left groin strain late in spring training, and he'll officially land on the IL to begin the regular season. The move is retroactive to April 4, but it's not yet clear when the southpaw will be able to make his 2022 debut.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Won't be ready for Opening Day
Manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that Chafin (groin) will begin the regular season on the injured list, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Chafin had been dealing with groin tightness for the last few days, and he won't have enough time to build up ahead of the regular season. The southpaw will be eligible to be placed on the 10-day injured list rather than the 15-day IL, but it's not yet clear when he'll be able to make his 2022 debut.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Opening Day in doubt
Chafin's availability for Opening Day is in question as he continues to receive treatment for groin tightness, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Chafin was scratched from a scheduled Grapefruit League appearance Wednesday, and time is getting tight for him to get back on track and avoid a trip to the injured list. The Tigers brought Jacob Barnes back from minor-league camp Friday, which seems to be a clear sign that they're worried Chafin won't break camp with the team.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Iffy as opener approaches
Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Thursday that Chafin will be sidelined for "at least a couple of days" due to the groin injury that prevented him from pitching in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Chafin didn't participate in the team warmup ahead of Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, as he instead met with the training staff to receive treatment for the injury that has been described as "groin tightness." Hinch wasn't ready to speculate what the injury might mean for Chafin's status for Opening Day, but the lefty reliever will presumably need to throw a bullpen session without incident at some point within the next week to avoid a stint on the injured list to begin the season....

Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Experiencing groin tightness
The Tigers scratched Chafin from his scheduled relief appearance in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays due to groin tightness, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Detroit is hopeful that after a couple days of rest, Chafin will be ready to take the mound when his next planned pitching appearance comes over the weekend. After inking a two-year, $13 million deal with Detroit earlier this month, Chafin is expected to serve as the team's top lefty setup man behind closer Gregory Soto.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Inks two-year deal with Tigers
Chafin signed a two-year, $13 million contract with the Tigers on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Chafin put together the best season of his career while pitching for the Cubs and Athletics last year, as he converted five of eight save opportunities with 22 holds while posting a 1.83 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 68.2 innings across 71 appearances. He'll be rewarded with a pay raise in Detroit and should factor into the team's late-inning mix, even though Gregory Soto has already been named the Tigers' closer heading into the season....

Andrew Chafin: Becomes free agent
Chafin declined his portion of his $5.25 million mutual option with the A's on Thursday, making him a free agent Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Chafin had a career-best season with the Cubs and Athletics in 2021 with a 1.83 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 68.2 innings across 71 appearances. He'll have the chance to earn a payday during the offseason and is a candidate to serve as a high-leverage reliever in 2022 if his results continue.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Andrew Chafin: Stuck with loss Wednesday
Chafin (2-4) took the loss Wednesday against the Mariners after giving up one run on one hit and a walk in an inning of work.
Chafin entered to pitch in the bottom of the seventh with the game tied 2-2, and he walked the opening batter before allowing a base hit to put runners on first and third. Ty France was able to put the Mariners back ahead with a sacrifice fly that scored the runner from third and the Athletics weren't able to make up the deficit. It was Chafin's first run given up in six appearances since Sept. 15 and is his second loss this month. The self-proclaimed "failed starter" has been elite as a reliever this year with a 1.83 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 64:19 K:BB over 68.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
