D-backs add Chafin, Ahmed, Wilson to roster
PHOENIX -- With Triple-A Reno's season having ended Sunday, the D-backs made a trio of roster moves, recalling infielder Nick Ahmed and left-hander Andrew Chafin from Reno and selecting the contract of catcher Bobby Wilson.
Chafin made his Major League debut earlier this year against the Indians in the second game of a doubleheader. The 24-year-old tossed five scoreless innings before being sent to Triple-A.
"I think we'd like to see Chafin throw another game just because we watched him in one game and he went back down to Triple-A and threw extremely well," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "He had a good mix of pitches, threw them to both sides of the plate."
As it stands, the D-backs have six men in their rotation with Wade Miley, Josh Collmenter, Randall Delgado, Chase Anderson, Vidal Nuno and Trevor Cahill.
With Anderson having far surpassed his innings total from a year ago, it stands to reason that Chafin could end up starting in place of Anderson next time through the rotation.
This is also Ahmed's second stint in the big leagues this year, while Wilson was last in the big leagues with the Angels in 2012.
