The replace is pending the evaluation of medical records. As soon as finalized, the Cubs are anticipated to rep two possibilities from the Athletics in return.
Chafin, 31, is having a stellar season. In 43 appearances, he has given up 9 runs, together with steady one house speed; and overall, he is 0-2 with a 2.06 ERA and a 0.839 WHIP.
Chafin, despite the incontrovertible fact that, has struggled recently, failing to memoir an out while giving up three runs on two hits and two walks in his final outing, on Saturday, in opposition to the Arizona Diamondbacks. It snapped a 24⅓-inning scoreless lunge for the broken-down.
MLB.com first reported that the replace was once being finalized.
