Player Outlook
Andrew Chafin has pitched for six different teams over the last four seasons, as there's always a market for steady left-handed relievers. After inking a 1-year deal with Arizona last February, the 33-year-old was one of the D'Backs most trusted relievers early on. He even got some run as the team's closer, tallying eight saves over the first two months. Chafin continued to find success with his slider (.111 BA), which had the 6th-highest whiff percentage (55.8%) in the league for that pitch type. Unfortunately, the southpaw couldn't sustain his early-season success and was traded to Milwaukee at the deadline. He closed out 2023 with a 5.82 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 14:10 K:BB over his final 17 innings and had his $7.25 million club option for 2024 declined. Chafin should still find work this season based on his experience and handedness, but he may be entering the downswing of his career.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Earns win Sunday

    Chafin (3-1) tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win in Sunday's 8-4, 10-inning victory over the Red Sox. He walked two and struck out two. Chafin got the last out of the bottom of the ninth inning, escaping a bases-loaded jam in a 4-4 game. Detroit then scored four times in the top of the 10th, setting the lefty up to close things out for his third win of the year. Chafin has had an up-and-down season, as he came into Sunday having allowed at least a run in his previous three appearances, but the veteran should remain in a key bullpen role despite his middling 4.58 ERA.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Struggles in first loss

    Chafin (2-1) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk without recording an out to take the loss Friday against the Astros. Chafin came on in the eighth inning with Detroit up 2-1 but he couldn't hold Houston in check and got saddled with his first loss of the season. The lefty has now allowed runs in consecutive appearances, which has pushed his ERA from 1.35 to 3.86. That's closer to the 4.73 ERA Chafin posted with Arizona and Milwaukee last year, though he was better in his last stint with the Tigers back in 2022, when he posted a 2.83 ERA.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Records win Friday

    Chafin (2-0) tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Friday against the Twins. Chafin continued his strong play to start the season, lowering his ERA to 2.08, and he now has two early wins as well. The lefty struggled to a 4.73 ERA last year with Arizona and Milwaukee, but he was strong for the Tigers back in 2022, posting a 2.83 ERA and 67 strikeouts across 57.1 innings. It looks like he may be back to that form in his second stint in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Earns first win of season

    Chafin (1-0) tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts to earn the win in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Rangers. Chafin continued his strong play, as he now has a stellar 1.42 ERA across 6.1 innings this season, and he picked up his first win in the process. However, the lefty seems to be a secondary option to close out games, as Jason Foley recorded the save Tuesday to give him five for the season, while Chafin has yet to record a save. That makes Foley the best fantasy asset in Detroit's bullpen at the moment, though Chafin has some value in deeper formats, particularly those that count holds.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Can't complete save

    Chafin recorded two outs in the ninth inning of Friday's 5-4 win over the A's, but he also walked two batters and was pulled for Alex Lange, who recorded the save. Chafin was close to recording his first save of the season, but the Tigers opted for the righty vs. righty matchup of Lange against Zack Gelof to close things out with two runners on base. Detroit has a fluid bullpen at the moment, with Chafin, Lange, Jason Foley and Shelby Miller all in the back-end mix. That could limit the value of all the pitchers, though Chafin should still have the opportunity to record holds and possibly a few saves moving forward.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Wraps up quiet spring

    Chafin recorded a 5.06 ERA across 5.1 innings this spring and is set for an Opening Day bullpen role in Detroit. The veteran lefty didn't need a ton of work in spring training, and despite so-so results, he'll slot into a high-leverage role for the Tigers. Chafin struggled a bit last year, posting a 4.73 ERA across 63 games for the Diamondbacks and Brewers, though he was better in 2022, when he recorded a 2.83 ERA across 64 games with this same Detroit squad. His ability to pitch frequently and not wear down has served him well across a 10-year MLB career, and he should once again see plenty of work in 2024.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Back with Detroit

    Chafin agreed to a one-year, $4.25 million contract with the Tigers on Sunday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Pressreports. The deal includes a $6.5 million club option for 2025 with a $500,000 buyout. Chafin split last season between the Diamondbacks and Brewers, and he posted an underwhelming 4.73 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 63:28 K:BB across 51.1 innings. Milwaukee then declined his $7.25 million club option for 2024. The veteran lefty delivered a 2.83 ERA in 64 outings for Detroit in 2022, and the organization is likely hoping he'll rediscover that form.

  • Andrew Chafin: Club option declined

    The Brewers declined Chafin's $7.25 million club option for 2024 on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Chafin will take a $725,000 buyout as he moves to the open market. The 33-year-old journeyman left-hander was a steady relief option for the Cubs, Athletics and Tigers in 2021-22 before stumbling to a 4.73 ERA across 51.1 innings this past season between Arizona and Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Andrew Chafin: Struggles with command in loss

    Chafin (2-4) took the loss Tuesday against Colorado. He allowed four runs (three earned) on one hit and two walks while failing to record an out. After the Brewers had already used Elvis Peguero, Joel Payamps and Devin Williams out of the bullpen, Chafin was called upon to handle the 10th inning. The recently acquired lefty walked Michael Toglia to begin the frame, then surrendered a bunt single to Brenton Doyle and walked Cole Tucker to score a run before exiting the game with the bases loaded. Abner Uribe came in to finish off the inning, but not before allowing all three inherited runners to score. Chafin now holds an 8.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP through nine innings across his last 11 appearances.

  • Brewers' Andrew Chafin: Sent north to Milwaukee

    The Brewers acquired Chafin from the Diamondbacks on Tuesday in exchange for Peter Strzelecki, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Chafin spent time in the closer role for Arizona earlier this year, accumulating eight saves, and he's more than just a situational lefty. In fact, Chafin has held opposing right-handed hitters to a .185/.267/.370 line so far this season. The 33-year-old will pitch important innings for Milwaukee down the stretch as the club looks to overtake the Reds in the NL Central.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Blows save

    Chafin (2-3) was tagged with the loss and a blown save against the Cardinals on Monday. He allowed five runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning. Chafin chalked up the outing to poor execution, per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. The right-hander got to two strikes on six of seven batters, but he could not put enough of them away. "Going for too many punch-outs, I think, and ended up walking guys, and we saw what happened," Chafin said. It was the second straight blown save for Chafin, who last worked a save opportunity July 5. He's one of a trio of relievers -- along with Scott McGough and Miguel Castro -- that manager Torey Lovullo has mixed and matched late in games. All three have had rough outings within the last week, which could open the door for Kevin Ginkel or perhaps a trade-deadline acquisition.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Returns from paternity leave

    Chafin was activated from the paternity leave list Friday. The veteran left-hander is back in the bullpen after tending to more important matters. Chafin has collected a 3.06 ERA and 45:15 K:BB over 32.1 innings out of the Diamondbacks' bullpen this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Placed on paternity list

    Arizona placed Chafin on the paternity list Tuesday. Chafin will miss at least a portion of the Diamondbacks' three-game series in Atlanta as he welcomes a new addition to his growing family. Luis Frias has been called up from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Can't hold lead

    Chafin (2-2) was charged with a blown save and the loss Wednesday. The left-hander allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning against the Mets. Chafin got the first two outs and nearly had the third, but catcher Carson Kelly couldn't hang on to Francisco Alvarez's foul tip. Given a second life, Alvarez drilled a game-tying home run to right-center field, and Chafin blew his third save in 11 chances. Two batters later, the Diamondbacks were down a run. Chafin had been the primary closer to the start the season, but he hadn't been used in a close-out situation since May 29, as Scott McGough emerged in that role. This was the third time in the last week the bullpen failed the Diamondbacks late in a game.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Back in action

    Chafin (ankle) struck out two over a scoreless and hitless inning in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Nationals. Chafin rolled an ankle Tuesday and was unavailable to pitch the last two days. He pitched the eighth inning Thursday while Scott McGough recorded the save, his third in as many appearances. Chafin's last save came May 29, though he remains a trusted late-inning arm.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Rolls ankle

    Chafin rolled his ankle during batting practice prior to Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Michael McDermott of SI.com reports. Chafin sustained the injury while shagging flyballs. He was scheduled to throw a bullpen session before the game, and it's unclear if he was available Tuesday. Chafin didn't pitch in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to Milwaukee.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Nabs eighth save

    Chafin earned a save over the Rockies on Monday, retiring the only batter he faced via strikeout. Drey Jameson pitched 3.2 scoreless innings in relief and nearly closed the game, but Chafin was summoned to record the final out after Randal Grichuk stroked a two-out single in the ninth. Chafin got Elehuris Montero to go down swinging on a slider to finish off the victory and earn his eighth save. The lefty reliever has nabbed four saves in May and appears to be sharing the closer role with Miguel Castro, who also has four saves this month.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Not available for save

    Chafin did not pitch in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Phillies. The Diamondbacks had a save situation -- entering the ninth inning up 5-3 -- but none of Chafin, Miguel Castro or Kyle Nelson were available after throwing three of the last four days. Jose Ruiz tried to close the door but gave up a two-run home run to Trea Turner before taking the loss in the 10th.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Preserves lead

    Chafin allowed one hit over two-thirds of an inning to record a hold in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Phillies. After Arizona took the lead in the top of the eighth inning, manager Torey Lovullo went with the lefty Chapin to face the top of Philadelphia's order, which included a pair of lefty hitters. Chafin and Scott McGough got the Diamondbacks through unscathed, setting up a save for Miguel Castro, who has recently become a regular in the closer mix. Matchups for Arizona appear to dictate late-game usage patterns, which includes decisions on which pitcher will throw the eighth inning, so fantasy managers can expect Chafin and Castro to share the save chances for now.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Chafin: Slams door for save

    Chafin issued one walk in a scoreless inning Monday. He struck out three batters and earned a save against the Phillies. Chafin worked around a two-out walk to secure the 6-3 victory for Arizona. It was his first save since May 15, while Miguel Castro recorded two outs in the seventh inning. Chafin has tossed five straight shutout frames, lowering his ERA to 3.38 with a 29:6 K:BB.
