by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Pirates optioned pitcher Phil Irwin and infielders Chris McGuiness and Brent Morel to Triple-A Indianapolis Friday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) The Pirates acquired first baseman Chris McGuiness from the Rangers Monday in exchange for reliever Miles Mikolas, who was acquired by Pittsburgh in a late November trade with the Padres. McGuiness was designated for assignment Dec. 27 after the Rangers signed Shin-Soo Choo.

McGuiness appeared in 10 games for the Rangers in 2013, batting .176 (6 for 34) with one double, one RBI and 13 strikeouts. In 454 minor-league games, McGuiness hit .257 with a .437 slugging percentage and .809 OPS.

Chris McGuiness collects first MLB hits


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2013) Rangers first baseman Chris McGuiness' first major-league hit came Sunday against the Blue Jays -- an RBI double in the fourth inning off Josh Johnson. He also had his first multi-hit game, finishing 2 for 4.

Chris McGuiness has forgettable debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2013) Like much of the Rangers' offense Friday, first baseman Chris McGuiness struggled to do anything against the Blue Jays. McGuiness was hitless in three at-bats in his first major-league game. 

McGuiness did not have a ball leave the infield, as he grounded out twice and struck out once in a 6-1 loss. 


Chris McGuiness draws first start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2013) Rangers first baseman Chris McGuiness will get his first start Friday against the Blue Jays. 

McGuiness was called up to replace Mitch Moreland, who was recently put on the disabled list. McGuiness will bat seventh in his debut. He was hitting .275 with five home runs in the minors this year. He got on base at a strong .382 clip.


Chris McGuiness to play plenty


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2013) The Rangers have a few options to fill in for Mitch Moreland at first base, but recently recalled Chris McGuiness is expected to get most of the starts there. Manager Ron Washington expects to use McGuiness nearly everyday against right-handed pitchers.

"McGuiness is going to get the majority of the time, the same time Moreland was getting," manager Ron Washington told ESPN.com. "I'll pick and choose with him on lefties."  

McGuiness was hitting .275 with six home runs and 34 RBI at Triple-A Round Rock, with a .382 on-base percentage. He also likely brings the best glove among the team's options at first base, according to general manager Jon Daniels.

"Chris is a good defender at first," Daniels said. "He gives you a good at-bat and he's earned the opportunity."


Chris McGuiness an AL-only gamble


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2013) With Mitch Moreland heading to the DL Thursday, AL-only owners may be considering his roster replacement, 25-year-old AFL MVP Chris McGuiness. Although Jeff Baker, and even Lance Berkman, may see time at first base, McGuiness is expected to see the majority of at-bats

A Rule 5 pick of the Indians this winter, McGuiness projected as the team's starting DH before a flurry of signings pushed him back to the Rangers. McGuiness has some power (23 home runs last year in Double-A), a decent average (.275 average this year), and has a .382 OBP over 55 games this season in the PCL. The question here is playing time -- if McGuiness is destined for the Donald Lutz-esque game or two per week, he is essentially useless, especially at a deep position (1B). But if Ron Washington really does plan on using him as the primary fill-in, McGuiness has some value with those regular at-bats. 

For now, McGuiness is worth an add in 12-team AL-only Roto, and worth keeping an eye on in anything shallower. 


Indians return Chris McGuiness to Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2013) The Indians announced Wednesday that 1B Chris McGuiness has been returned to the Texas Rangers. A Rule V selection by the Indians, McGuiness hit .195/.267/.244 in 45 plate appearances with the team this spring. The transaction leaves the Indians with one empty spot on the 40-man roster.

Indians would like to keep Chris McGuiness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Indians would like to work out a deal with the Rangers to keep McGuiness, who hit .268 with 23 homers and 77 RBI at Double-A last season.
