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.
