Chargois (6-1) pitched a perfect inning and struck out two, earning the win Wednesday versus Toronto.
The 30-year-old was the first reliever in the game after starter Luis Patino was pulled after three innings. Chargois has enjoyed his best major-league season with a 2.44 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 50:17 K:BB through 51.2 innings this year. While he entered Wednesday's game early, his 14 holds across 53 appearances between Tampa Bay and Seattle indicate he'll continue to be in the mix for high-leverage situations.
Chargois secured his 14th hold in a win over the Blue Jays on Monday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he allowed a hit and a walk while also recording a strikeout.
Chargois labored some, throwing 22 pitches and getting only 11 into the strike zone while working around a pair of baserunners. However, the right-hander was able to ultimately furnish his fourth scoreless effort in the last five appearances and now boasts an impressive 2.49 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across 50.2 innings with the Mariners and Rays this season.
Chargois (5-1) took the loss and was charged with a blown save in a defeat at the hands of the Red Sox on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over one inning.
Chargois served up a go-ahead two-run home run to Hunter Renfroe in the eighth inning after the Rays' Nelson Cruz had snapped a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the visitor's half of the frame. Chargois has now allowed an earned run in back-to-back appearances, only the second such time he's done so this season.
Chargois (4-0) earned the win over the Orioles on Saturday, firing a perfect seventh inning.
Chargois fired 11 of 14 pitches for strikes in a pristine performance. The right-hander now has four straight scoreless appearances and has notched victories in two of his last three trips to the mound, coaxing his ERA and WHIP down to 2.38 and 0.94, respectively.
Chargois (2-0) allowed two hits and a walk in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win over the Orioles on Sunday.
Chargois has made four relief appearances since he was traded from the Mariners to the Rays, and he's tossed 4.1 scoreless innings to begin his time with his new club. The right-hander earned a hold in his last outing, and he was rewarded with his first win since June 9 in Sunday's appearance. Chargois now has a 2.62 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 34.1 innings across 35 relief appearances in 2021.
Chargois fired a perfect seventh inning in a win over the Red Sox on Friday, recording a strikeout.
The reliever was put right to work following his trade from the Mariners and displayed top-notch efficiency, getting first-pitch strikes on all three batters he faced and recording three outs on just 12 pitches. The Rays thought highly enough of Chargois to deal away closer Diego Castillo for him, so it's likely the right-hander sees a steady flow of work moving forward.
Chargois was traded from the Mariners to the Rays along with Austin Shenton on Thursday in exchange for Diego Castillo, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Chargois has been a key member of the Mariners bullpen to this point in the campaign. He's maintained a 3.00 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with 29 strikeouts across 30 innings while also tallying nine holds. Though Chargois has zero career saves, the Rays' bullpen usage is unpredictable, so it's possible he picks up some save chances. That's particularly true while Pete Fairbanks (shoulder), J.P. Feyereisen (biceps) and Nick Anderson (elbow) all remain sidelined.
Chargois recorded his eighth hold in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday, giving up two hits over a scoreless sixth inning.
The right-hander now has five consecutive scoreless appearances, even as he's pitched to some contact by allowing four hits over that five-inning span. Chargois didn't fare well in either of his save chances earlier this season, but he has offered value with his eight holds, 2.30 ERA and 0.88 WHIP over 27.1 innings.
Chargois fired a scoreless fourth inning in a loss to the Angels on Sunday, recording two strikeouts.
Chargois took over for opener Hector Santiago and made quick work of the Angels in the fourth, needing only 15 pitches, six which impressively resulted in swinging strikes, to get through the one frame. Chargois allowed an earned run apiece in back-to-back appearances to close out June, but he's opened July with three straight scoreless one-inning efforts to coax his ERA and WHIP back down to 2.49 and 0.83, respectively.
Chargois recorded one out and notched his seventh hold in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
A three-pitch tussle with Jose Abreu that culminated in a foul pop was all it took for Chargois to earn his seventh hold and extend his impressive stretch of pitching. Factoring in Friday's quick outing, Chargois hasn't allowed an earned run in 11 of 12 trips to the mound and has lowered his ERA and WHIP to an impressive 2.18 and 0.68, respectively.
Chargois (1-0) allowed an unearned run and struck out two in one inning to earn the win in extra innings versus Detroit on Wednesday.

Chargois mowed through his frame on just six pitches, posting his sixth straight scoreless effort and coaxing his ERA under 2.00 in the process. The 30-year-old did not log a majors appearance last season and looks like a completely different pitcher than in his last big-league tenure with the Dodgers in 2019 (6.33 ERA across 14 appearances).
Chargois secured his third hold in a win over the Rangers on Sunday, uncorking a wild pitch before getting the final out of the seventh inning with a strikeout.

Chargois fired 1.1 perfect innings in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday, recording two strikeouts.
Summoned from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day in a corresponding move to Ljay Newsome's placement on the injured list, Chargois received an immediate opportunity to make his Mariners regular-season debut. The 30-year-old was logging his first game action since 2019 with the Dodgers and should see low-leverage opportunities akin to Sunday's during his time with the big-league club.
The Mariners selected Chargois' contract from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
He'll join the Seattle bullpen as a replacement for starter Ljay Newsome, who was placed on the 10-day injured list after exiting his start against the Rangers early Saturday due to right elbow inflammation. The 30-year-old Chargois, who owns a 4.58 ERA across 85 career MLB appearances, is expected to work mostly in lower-leverage spots.
Chargois was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Chargois signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Chargois left affiliated ball last winter to join the Rakuten Eagles in Japan. He didn't exactly cover himself in glory overseas, struggling to a 5.81 ERA and a 19:14 K:BB in 26.1 innings. Between those struggles and his 6.33 ERA in 21.1 innings for the Dodgers in his latest big-league action in 2019, it's no surprise he had to settle for a minor-league deal.
Chargois signed with the Rakuten Eagles of Japan's Pacific League on Sunday, just a day after he was released by the Dodgers, Jim Allen of jballen.com reports.
Chargois was released by the Dodgers on Saturday after spending just two seasons with the ballclub. The right-hander appeared in 21 games this past season, accumulating 21.1 innings while racking up a 6.33 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP out of the bullpen. Even with those numbers, Chargois is expected to be placed in the closing role upon his arrival to the Eagles in Japan.
Chargois was released by the Dodgers on Saturday, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.
Chargois made 21 major-league appearances in 2019 as he recorded a 6.33 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP over 21.1 relief innings. He was slightly more effective with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he was granted a release by the Dodgers on Saturday in order to pursue opportunities to play in Japan. If the 29-year-old signs a contract overseas and manages to perform well, it wouldn't be surprising to see him return stateside at some point.
Chargois was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.
The 28-year-old returns to the minors after giving up three earned runs in 1.1 innings Thursday against the Marlins. Right-hander Josh Sborz was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
