Robinson Chirinos had a plate inserted in his right forearm Monday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Keith Meister. Chirinos suffered a fractured right forearm when he was hit by a pitch on Saturday and is expected to miss 10-12 weeks. Bryan Holaday should see most of the starts behind the plate for now.
Apr 11 - 5:42 PM

Rangers placed C Robinson Chirinos on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured right forearm.

He's expected to be sidelined for 10-12 weeks. It's a big blow, as the club had already been nervous about their catching depth, forcing them to trade for Bryan Holaday prior to Opening Day. Holaday will handle the bulk of the catching duties for now, although it wouldn't be a surprise to see Texas seek more help from outside the organization.
Apr 10 - 1:19 PM

X-rays have revealed that Robinson Chirinos suffered a fractured right forearm when he was hit by a pitch on Saturday.

He's expected to miss at least a month of action. It's a tough break for the Rangers, as they already acquired Bryan Holaday prior to Opening Day because they were nervous about their catching depth. Holaday will take over as the starter, while Brett Nicholas is expected to be called up to serve as the backup.

Robinson Chirinos left Saturday's game against the Angels with a left forearm injury.

He's headed for X-rays. Bryan Holaday replaced him in the bottom of the fifth inning. Chirinos has been moderately productively this year, collecting four hits including a home run in his first 15 at-bats (.267).
Apr 9 - 11:28 PM

Robinson Chirinos went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Chirinos feasted upon a Hector Santiago offering in the third inning, launching it to left for a solo homer and his only hit of the contest. As a team, the Rangers did little outside of that loud hit -- they finished the game with just four knocks. The 31-year-old Chirinos has clocked double-digit home runs in each of the last two seasons, but beyond of that nice bit of pop, there isn't much to dig into in terms of fantasy play.
Apr 8 - 1:28 AM

Rangers and C Robinson Chirinos avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.55 million contract.

It's a nice raise for the backstop in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Chirinos hit .232/.325/.438 with 10 homers for the Rangers in 2015, missing ample time due to injury. He currently tops the depth chart at catcher, but Texas would surely like to upgrade at the position.
Jan 15 - 12:36 PM

Robinson Chirinos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 5-3 Game 1 ALDS win over the Blue Jays.

Chirinos hit ninth in Thursday's raucous contest with the Blue Jays. He delivered from the bottom of the lineup card, swatting a two-run homer off Toronto ace David Price in the fifth inning. At the time, it increased the Ranger lead to 4-1. A biceps injury hampered him down the stretch in September, but it didn't appear to limit him under the October spotlight as the Rangers began their quest for playoff immortality. The 31-year-old catcher's not a pure power hitter by any stretch of the imagination, though he did pop 10 long balls in the regular season. He'll do battle with Blue Jays Game 2 starter Marcus Stroman on Friday.

Robinson Chirinos (biceps) will be ready for the ALDS.

Chirinos missed much of September with a left biceps injury, but he got in a few games before the end of the regular season and will get a bunch more rest this week. The 31-year-old catcher posted a .762 OPS with 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 78 games this season.
Mon, Oct 5, 2015 04:02:00 PM

Robinson Chirinos (biceps) has been cleared to return to action.

He's not starting Sunday, but Chirinos will be available off the bench. He hasn't started since injuring his left biceps on September 9.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 01:20:00 PM

Robinson Chirinos (biceps) is expected back in the Rangers' lineup on Saturday.

Chirinos returned from a shoulder injury last week only to suffer a biceps ailment a couple days after being activated. He's feeling better, though, and will take live batting practice Friday.

Robinson Chirinos (biceps) did some throwing in the batting cage Tuesday.

It's the first time he's done so since he injured a tendon in his biceps last week. Chirinos is feeling better but thinks he's about a week away from being available.
Wed, Sep 16, 2015 10:50:00 AM

Robinson Chirinos will miss about a week with soreness in his left biceps tendon.

He must have injured it in Wednesday's game against the Mariners. Bobby Wilson is starting at catcher Saturday against Oakland. Chirinos doesn't have much fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues.
Sat, Sep 12, 2015 07:31:00 PM

Rangers activated C Robinson Chirinos from the 15-day disabled list.

Chirinos wound up missing over a month with a muscle strain in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. The 31-year-old catcher didn't hit very well on his minor league rehab assignment, but he's safe for activation again in AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 02:49:00 PM

Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

Chirinos' progress from left shoulder soreness has been slow, but it appears he's finally made some strides. He shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated.
