Latest Update Robinson Chirinos is now catching and batting sixth for the Rangers on Sunday. Sun Aug, 24, 02:35 PM
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 replaces Geovany Soto, after he was a late scratch. If Soto misses significant time Chirinos would likely get most of the starts at catcher.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Chirinos was hitting just .140 (6-for-43) over his last 13 games, but does have five hits over his last 11 at-bats with Tuesday's home run being his 10th of the year. While Chirinos has had some struggles prior to this series against the White Sox, he has impressed on the defensive side of the plate as well as he came into Tuesday's game tied with Indians Yan Gomes for the MLB lead with 22 runners gunned down trying to steal. The defensive nugget is not all that important, but it should help him continue to see plenty of at-bats and if he can carry over what he has done over his last few games onto the next series than he can began to be considered a more viable fantasy option.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Chirinos has now hit a homerun in back to back games bringing his season total to nine. Along with those nine home runs Chirinos has hit .251 with 27 RBI while sharing time at catcher and first base. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Chirinos has now homered in back-to-back games, while driving in five runs and scoring three times in that span. He is now hitting .248 with six home runs and 20 RBI through his first 133 at-bats, and should now start to gain interest from those outside of AL-only leagues as he continues to flash some power, although he is not proven enough to determine if it will be lasting.
