Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Bobby Wilson out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:07:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, June 18. 1B/DH Prince Fielder will play first base and bat fifth, INF Jurickson Profar will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder is starting at first base because the game is taking place in a National League stadium, which means the DH is not in effect. Profar is batting .412 in 51 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this year and should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats. Chirinos has four home runs and seven RBI in just 28 at-bats this year and makes an excellent value play in DFS.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos hits two more home runs

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 23:28:34 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos hit a pair of solo home runs against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a lengthy absence due to a broken forearm, Chirinos has homered three times in the last two games, driving in five. He has always shown decent power at the cost of a low average, so if you have plenty of the latter but little of the former he could be worth grabbing in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos back in action

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:11:04 -0700

Texas Ranges C Robinson Chirinos is back in the lineup Sunday, June 12, and will bat ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos went 0-for-3 in his first big-league action in over two months after recovering from a broken forearm Friday and was used strictly as a pinch runner Saturday. He'll eventually settle in as the regular catcher again as he gets acclimated, but owners should expect Bryan Holaday and Bobby Wilson to steal some more starts behind the plate over the next few days until that happens.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos starting Friday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:20:37 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is starting behind the plate and is batting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos returned from the DL yesterday and will cut into the playing time of Bobby Wilson and Bryan Holaday. None of this trio of catchers should be considered anything more than a second backstop in two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Chirinos hit just .232 last year with 10 home runs and 34 RBI. He's a low-end catching commodity in daily games tonight hitting at the bottom of the order.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos activated

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 10:44:08 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (forearm) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, June 9. RP Luke Jackson was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Bryan Holaday and Bobby Wilson had been serving as an effective catching tandem with Chirinos injured, so it remains to be seen how they'll progress at the position moving forward. Chirinos should at least see part-time duties, but he's nothing more than a midrange second catcher in two-catcher and AL-only leagues. He has a career .232/.301/.413 slash line with 25 home runs in five seasons.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo, Robinson Chirinos progressing

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 11:27:49 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (hamstring) and C Robinson Chirinos (forearm) will fly to Arizona to play in extended spring games Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Both Choo and Chirinos should return to regular roles in the starting lineup when they return from the DL, which means they should be stashed in most formats. Choo is a midrange outfielder who contributes modestly across most offensive categories, while Chirinos is more of a No. 2 fantasy catcher in two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos rehab update

Sat, 14 May 2016 10:20:34 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (forearm) was able to throw every day from Monday, May 9, to Friday, May 13, reaching a distance of 90 feet during Friday's throwing session.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos is not eligible to return from the disabled list until June 9, but expect him to see the bulk of the action behind the plate for Texas once he has been activated. He's worth stashing in AL-only and two-catcher fantasy leagues.

Rangers | More tests for Robinson Chirinos

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:51:19 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (forearm) will have more scans Tuesday, May 3, to determine if he is healed enough to resume baseball activities and minor-league rehab games. He has been catching balls from a machine in the batting cage and running.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Chirinos in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game. Brett Nicholas and Bryan Holaday are holding down the fort behind the dish until Chirinos is healthy enough to return.
