Robinson Chirinos was scratched from the Rangers' starting lineup Wednesday due to a sore left wrist.

Carlos Perez will fill in at catcher and bat ninth versus Tigers left-hander Francisco Liriano. Chirinos is listed as day-to-day for now, though this left wrist issue has become a lingering thing.
May 9 - 12:14 PM

Robinson Chirinos went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Chirinos has put together a good couple of weeks, going 9-for-31 with four homers, six RBI and six runs scored since April 21. He needed that stretch to bring his line back towards respectability, after he entered play on April 21 batting .145. He's still hitting just .198/.278/.477 but has six homers in 24 games, and should continue to provide pop in Arlington as the season goes along.
May 4 - 12:16 AM

Robinson Chirinos hit his sixth home run of the year Monday in the Rangers' loss to the Indians.

Chirinos clubbed a solo shot to right off Indians starter Trevor Bauer in the top of the seventh inning. The dinger tied the game at 2-2, but Cleveland would go on to win 7-5 after some bad bullpen work by both sides. Chirinos has shown impressive pop over the last couple of weeks, but he's still batting just .182 with a .273 on-base percentage over 88 total plate appearances this season.
Apr 30 - 10:47 PM

Robinson Chirinos hit a pair of solo homers to lead the Rangers past the Blue Jays 7-4 on Saturday.

Chirinos hit solo shots off Blue Jays starter Jaime Garcia in the second inning and reliever Seung-Hwan Oh in the sixth, giving him five dingers on the year. That's great, but those homers constitute five of his 13 hits overall this season, part of a less-impressive .186/.284/.471 line. Still, with catcher being the black hole that it is, there's room for Chirinos on a fantasy roster in deep and two-catcher leagues.
Apr 28 - 7:31 PM

Rangers' manager Jeff Bannister said Friday night that Robinson Chirinos has been battling a sore wrist.

Chirinos injured his wrist in a play at the plate about a week ago and it has bothered him ever since. Bannister did say that he expects Chirinos to return to action behind the plate for the final two games of the weekend series against the Blue Jays.
Apr 27 - 10:30 PM

Robinson Chirinos hit his third homer Monday off Oakland's Trevor Cahill.

Chirinos has just 10 hits in 63 at-bats, giving him a .159 average, but at least seven of those have gone for extra bases. He's a viable fantasy catcher while healthy.
Apr 24 - 12:02 AM

Robinson Chirinos homered and drove in three runs on Sunday, powering the Rangers to a 3-1 victory over the Astros in 10 innings.

Chirinos clubbed a solo home run off of Justin Verlander to get the Rangers on the board in the third inning, the lone hit that the Rangers would tally in eight innings against the Astros' hurler. He was drilled by a pitch in the elbow later in the contest, but remained in the game. It's a good thing to, as he delivered a two-run double in the 10th inning that proved to be the difference. With his 2-for-3 night, Chirinos is now hitting .182/.288/.386 with two homers and six RBI on the season.
Apr 15 - 11:17 PM

Robinson Chirinos hit his first homer of the year Friday off the Astros' Gerrit Cole.

Chirinos is still batting just .146 in 41 at-bats. He'll get better and he's probably a top-15 fantasy catcher while healthy, but he's a big-time injury risk.
Apr 13 - 11:08 PM

Robinson Chirinos (wrist) went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his return to the Rangers' lineup on Friday.

Chirinos missed Thursday's game with an injured left wrist, but he was right back in there behind the dish on Friday. He should be fine moving forward.
Apr 7 - 9:04 AM

Robinson Chirinos (wrist) said he expects to be fine in a day or two.

Chirinos injured his left wrist on a hard tag at home plate Wednesday and he is not in the Rangers' starting lineup Thursday against the A's, but this doesn't sound like a huge issue. Juan Centeno will catch and hit ninth on Thursday afternoon against Oakland right-hander Daniel Mengden.
Apr 5 - 1:27 PM

Robinson Chirinos is dealing with a sore left wrist.

Chirinos had to put an awkward tag on Matt Chapman in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's loss to the Athletics. He stayed in the game but was wearing a thick ice pack in the clubhouse afterward. "The doctor said tomorrow, if it is bothering me, we'll get it X-rayed," Chirinos told reporters. "If it was broken, I don't think I would have stayed in the game." Consider him day-to-day for now.
Apr 5 - 8:15 AM

Robinson Chirinos went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

He singled to drive in Elvis Andrus with his team's only run of the game in the sixth inning. The Rangers' primary catcher has a fine .269/.379/.547 triple slash with 17 home runs and 38 RBI in 78 games this season.

It was a solo shot in the bottom of the second inning off Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery. Chirinos also drew a walk and scored in the bottom of the fourth, finishing the day 1-for-2 with one RBI and two runs. He's reached base safely in 24 consecutive games and his season OPS is up to .938.
