Rangers | Robinson Chirinos on the bench

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:34:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Monday, July 20. C Tomas Telis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Telis will be receiving his first start of the season and probably should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Sunday, July 12. C Carlos Corporan will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup after the break. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .181 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Carlos Corporan starting

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:36:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Carlos Corporan is making the start behind the plate Saturday, July 4, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Corporan will hit eighth in the order against LHP Hector Santiago, while C Robinson Chirinos comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has gone 4-for-10 in his last three starts, with one double and one home run. FantasyScore owners can consider Corporan for use in GPP tournaments.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting vs. O's

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:13:03 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Carlos Corporan is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has respectable counting stats this season (21 runs, seven home runs and 26 RBI), and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher formats going forward. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a .544 OPS this season, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Monday.

Rangers | Texas has struggled against Sonny Gray

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:01:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Leonys Martin, 3B Adrian Beltre, 2B Rougned Odor and C Robinson Chirinos are a combined .128 (14-for-109) in their careers against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray, who they face Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: None of the players mentioned for Texas are hitting particularly well at this time, either, so it's best to stay away from them on FantasyScore this afternoon. Beltre ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), who came off the DL early the other day, is still swinging with pain in his thumb.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting Wednesday

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:24:38 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 17, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Switch-hitting C Carlos Corporan will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order against LHP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has fared better against southpaws for his career, but that means hitting .241 as opposed to his .208 average against righties. Corporan should be ignored on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting out

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 09:35:34 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. C Carlos Corporan will take his place in the lineup and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day of rest and should play in the next game or two. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .184 in his limited playing time this season and may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos returns to the lineup

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 14:17:18 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (hand) is batting seventh and starting behind the plate against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) missed the game Wednesday, June 3, with a bruised right hand, and with capable-lefty Carlos Rodon on the hill for Chicago, Thursday might not be the best night to utilize Chirinos in FantasyScore contests. However, he does have the handedness advantage and a 1.031 OPS against southpaws this season. Consider Chirinos a high-risk, high-reward option in daily contests Thursday.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos still out

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:31:13 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (hand) is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. C Carlos Corporan is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 14 hits in 72 at-bats (.194), and he's a weak catching option on FantasyScore against the nasty Sale. X-rays were negative on Chirinos' hand, but it's unclear when he might return. Stay tuned.
