|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos drove in a career-high five runs in Tuesday's win over Angels.
Chirinos hit a two-run double in the second inning that fell between Mike Trout and Matt Joyce. He launched a three-run home run off Jose Alvarez in the sixth inning to break the game open. He finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and five RBI in an 8-2 victory.
With the two hits, his batting average rose from .077 to .176 (3 for 17) on the year.
Rangers' Shin-Soo Choo not in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (back) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Choo left Friday's game with upper back spasms and has been out of the lineup for the last two days. The Rangers are also keeping designated hitter Mitch Moreland and catcher Robinson Chirinos out of Sunday's lineup.
The Rangers are home underdogs (+110) against the Astros Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: Robinson Chirinos, heretofore a third-catcher type with the Rays, got a chance to be the Rangers' primary catcher last year and was surprisingly productive, hitting 13 home runs in 306 at-bats. Of course, he ranked only 27th among catchers in Head-to-Head leagues and 23rd in Rotisserie, but he was serviceable off the waiver wire in two-catcher leagues.|
Playing time status: Last year, Chirinos fell into the starting role when Geovany Soto went down early with a knee injury and J.P. Arencibia sank further into ineptitude, but he'll be starting by design this year, which should mean 400-plus at-bats. The Rangers do have one of the game's best catching prospects in Jorge Alfaro, but he's at least another year away.
2015 outlook: Offensively, Chirinos' only real skill is power, and even that's just moderate. Not every catcher will hit double-digit home runs, though, so in Rotisserie leagues, he has low-end appeal. Still, you can probably leave him for AL-only formats on Draft Day.
