Robinson Chirinos homered and doubled to lead the Rangers offense in Friday's win.

Chirinos is 4-for-8 with two homers in his last two starts after opening the season 1-for-13. He figures to have a tough time staying healthy while catching regularly for the Rangers, but until he gets hurt, he should be a decent second catcher in mixed leagues.

Robinson Chirinos went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a three-run double to help the Rangers beat the Angels on Tuesday.

Chirinos hadn't knocked in more than three runs in a game since 2011. He doubled in a pair of runs in the second inning, then hit a three-run home run off of Jose Alvarez in the sixth. Chirinos had been 1-for-16 entering the night, so Tuesday's performance will certainly help spruce up his stats. Over a larger sample size, Chirinos isn't likely to provide any value in the average or on-base percentage departments, but will almost certainly provide cheap power in two-catcher formats.
