Robinson Chirinos Could Avoid Injured List

There is growing optimism that Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos (ankle) will avoid the injured list, but he might be limited in the first few series of the regular season. Chirinos injured his ankle during an intrasquad game on Monday, but the injury isn't that serious. The 36-year-old can be extremely streaky and is unlikely to help with a high batting average, but he did hit 17 home runs in 114 games for Houston last year and he can provide 15-plus long balls and 50-plus RBI as a second backstop in two-catcher leagues. Jeff Mathis could see more starts behind the dish to kick off the regular season as Chirinos works his way back to full health.

Robinson Chirinos To Miss A Week Of Spring Training Games

Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos(hamstring) will not be behind the plate when the team takes the field for their first spring training game on Friday against the Kansas City Royals. The offseason acquisition is still nursing a hamstring strain that he suffered in January and will be limited to bullpen work for the next week. It should not affect his status for Opening Day. Chirinos is an option in two-catcher or AL-only leagues and is currently the 22nd catcher going off the board in NFBC leagues with an ADP of 296. In the meantime, expect Jeff Mathis and Jose Trevino to pick up most of the opportunities while Chirinos continues to protect his hamstring.

Robinson Chirinos Returning To Rangers

The Texas Rangers agreed to a one-year, $6.75 million deal with catcher Robinson Chirinos on Tuesday, according to MLB sources. He'll make $5.75 million in 2020, and the deal includes a club option for 2021 worth $6.25 million or a $1 million buyout. Texas opted not to pick up Chirinos' option for 2019 and instead went with Jeff Mathis, who hit just .158 with a .433 OPS. The 35-year-old Chirinos isn't the most polished defender behind the plate, but he hit 17 long balls and had a .790 OPS in a career-high 437 at-bats for the Astros last season. Chirinos will be the Rangers primary catcher in 2020 and will have plenty of fantasy appeal for his power in a hitter-friendly park. Just remember that Chirinos is as streaky as they come offensively.
