Veteran lefty reliever Andrew Chafin is one of several viable relief pitchers who have yet to sign with a team this offseason.
The 32-year-old had a solid season with the Detroit Tigers in 2022, posting a 2.83 ERA in 64 appearances.
But now, he is back on the market and has still yet to sign.
Chafin was once a member of the Chicago Cubs, a team he spent two seasons with after seven years with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
During his time on the North Side of Chicago, Chafin posted a 2.13 ERA in 47 appearances.
On Twitter, a Cubs fan vouched for the team to potentially bring him back for the 2023 season.

Chafin would be a good addition to the Cubs bullpen.
He spent the 2020 season with the team before being traded to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline in 2021.
For his career, the veteran left-hander owns a 3.23 ERA.
Chafin could serve as a lefty specialist of sorts in the Cubs bullpen.
But signing him won’t be an easy task, as several teams will be interested in the veteran left-hander’s services.
He was a fan favorite during his time in Chicago, however, and would be a welcome addition to the team.
Chicago also only has one left-handed reliever in its bullpen, that being Brandon Hughes.
A second left-handed relief pitcher is never a bad thing for a team.
The Cubs have been busy this offseason, having signed Jameson Taillon, Dansby Swanson, Tucker Barnhart, Eric Hosmer, Cody Bellinger, and Trey Mancini to bolster their club.
