Rangers' Brett Nicholas: Not seeing much time behind Chirinos
Nicholas went 1-for-3 with a base hit in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.
Nicholas started behind the plate while regular backstop Robinson Chirinos rested for the day game, marking the former's second appearance since Aug. 20. With the Rangers in the thick of the American League wild-card race, it's expected that the hot-hitting Chirinos will start at catcher in just about every scenario except day games after night games, so don't expect Nicholas' at-bats to pick up until Texas is eliminated.
