Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting vs. O's

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:13:03 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Carlos Corporan is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has respectable counting stats this season (21 runs, seven home runs and 26 RBI), and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher formats going forward. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a .544 OPS this season, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Monday.

Rangers | Texas has struggled against Sonny Gray

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:01:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Leonys Martin, 3B Adrian Beltre, 2B Rougned Odor and C Robinson Chirinos are a combined .128 (14-for-109) in their careers against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray, who they face Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: None of the players mentioned for Texas are hitting particularly well at this time, either, so it's best to stay away from them on FantasyScore this afternoon. Beltre ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), who came off the DL early the other day, is still swinging with pain in his thumb.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting Wednesday

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:24:38 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 17, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Switch-hitting C Carlos Corporan will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order against LHP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has fared better against southpaws for his career, but that means hitting .241 as opposed to his .208 average against righties. Corporan should be ignored on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting out

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 09:35:34 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. C Carlos Corporan will take his place in the lineup and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day of rest and should play in the next game or two. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .184 in his limited playing time this season and may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos returns to the lineup

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 14:17:18 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (hand) is batting seventh and starting behind the plate against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) missed the game Wednesday, June 3, with a bruised right hand, and with capable-lefty Carlos Rodon on the hill for Chicago, Thursday might not be the best night to utilize Chirinos in FantasyScore contests. However, he does have the handedness advantage and a 1.031 OPS against southpaws this season. Consider Chirinos a high-risk, high-reward option in daily contests Thursday.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos still out

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:31:13 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (hand) is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. C Carlos Corporan is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 14 hits in 72 at-bats (.194), and he's a weak catching option on FantasyScore against the nasty Sale. X-rays were negative on Chirinos' hand, but it's unclear when he might return. Stay tuned.

Fantasy Tip: If Chirinos cannot play, look for Carlos Corporan ($1,800; or 3.6% of cap) to make the start.

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:32:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is likely getting a normal night off from catching. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .091 in his last 12 plate appearances and is not worth the start.

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:18:20 -0700

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos out of lineup Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:54:43 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21, against the Boston Red Sox. C Carlos Corporan is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) appears to be getting a normal night off. As for Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), he has two hits in his last eight at-bats so he might be a good source of low-cost catching.
