Rangers | Robinson Chirinos bypasses arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:39:12 -0800

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos avoided arbitration by signing a one-year deal Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos had a .232-10-34 line in platoon duty last season, but his fantasy prospects lean more to depth than starting.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos starts again

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 09:18:38 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) made his second straight start Thursday, Oct. 1, for the first time since late July.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has hit well since his return from the DL, going 3-for-8 (.375) with a home run and one run driven in. The Rangers are trying to get him back up to full speed for the playoffs next week, and he can be a nice value pick at catcher if he's in the lineup to close out the regular season.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos making progress

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 09:17:45 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) caught in the cages Tuesday, Sept. 15, for the first time since he re-injured his left shoulder last week.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown when Chirinos ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will return to the Texas lineup. With four catchers already on roster, though, it might be tough for him to find consistent playing time when he is ready to contribute.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos rehab update

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:06:06 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) caught a nine-inning simulated game with a pitching machine Friday, Aug. 28. Manager Jeff Banister said he is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list when rosters are expanded Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) experienced normal fatigue in his legs and hips following the simulated game. Banister said he would prefer not to use him until he's ready to resume his role as the Rangers' primary catcher. AL-only fantasy owners and owners in two-catcher leagues should continue to monitor his progress.

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) has started to play catch in Arlington, and he has also started to take some light swings.

Rangers | Texas catchers making slow progress

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 16:00:30 -0700

Texas Rangers Cs Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) and Carlos Corporan (thumb) are both making slow progress from their injuries, and general manager Jon Daniels said the two are playing catch. Chirinos has taken swings off a tee but has yet to take batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for a return for either Chirinos or Corporan. In the meantime, Chris Gimenez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is seeing most of the starts behind home plate, and he's an option to add in AL-only leagues if you're hurting at catcher in the short term.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos receives PRP injection

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:05:56 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his left shoulder strain Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been a serviceable catcher for AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats, so his absence is a tough blow in those deep formats. Bobby Wilson holds fleeting value as Chirinos' replacement, but you're really scrapping the bottom of the barrel starting him. FantasyScore players should also look elsewhere.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:35:24 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Wilson can be completely avoided against both left- and right-handed pitching on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos on the bench

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:34:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Monday, July 20. C Tomas Telis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Telis will be receiving his first start of the season and probably should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting out

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 10:54:58 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Sunday, July 12. C Carlos Corporan will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup after the break. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .181 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
