As an undersized lefty, Chafin arrived at Texas A&M as a freshman and quickly discovered that he wasn't ready for the Southeastern Conference. He redshirted that year and ended up transferring to Blinn (Texas) JC the next year to get needed innings. Even after that dose of experience, Chafin was used very minimally as a redshirt sophomore upon his return to Texas A&M. But this year he has taken a big step forward as a crafty lefty with an 84-90 mph fastball and an above-average curveball. Chafin also throws a changeup but his success is largely based around his ability to locate both in and out with advanced command. He's a lefty reliever in pro ball and as such, he will have to decide if he's ready for pro ball as a later-round pick this year or if he wants to wait to be a senior sign.
