Latest Update Robinson Chirinos hits 13th home run Sun Sep, 28, 05:02 AM
Has home-run power and a pretty good batting eye at the minor-league level. Calls a good game and displays leadership qualities.
Flaws: : Like a lot of catchers, who focus on receiving, he's a very inconsistent hitter who isn't much of a threat at the big-league level.
Chirinos is now slashing .239/.290/.415 with 13 home runs and 40 RBI through 306 at-bats as he makes the best of his increased playing time behind the dish. If he is able to hold onto the role heading into 2015 he makes for a solid backstop option in AL-only leagues, but nothing more. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Chirinos is batting .360 during the month of September and flashed his power on Tuesday night. He will likely start behind the plate for three or four of the Rangers final five games.Analyst: David Kerr
Chirinos has been dealing with a stiff neck and will now have missed his fourth consecutive game because of it. The cortisone shot should help, but he'll need some time for it to settle in on him. J.P. Arencibia will handle the work behind the plate Thursday.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Rangers may not rush Chirinos back as this season is a lost cause. Monitor his status closely to see what the Rangers decide to do. Chirinos is hitting .232 on the year with 11 home runs.Analyst: Colby Conway
