Chirinos (wrist) is slated to catch and bat seventh Tuesday in a game at the Yankees' alternate site, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports. The veteran catcher will be taking part in his first game action since March 10, when he fractured his right wrist in a Grapefruit League contest against the Pirates. He underwent surgery soon after, missing just over a month before gaining clearance for full baseball activities. It's unclear whether Chirinos plans to remain at the alternate site with the hope of being promoted to the big-league roster in the near future; he could also report to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre when the minor-league season starts next week.
Chirinos (wrist) has started swinging a bat and making throws to second base, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports. Chirinos suffered a fractured right wrist as a result of a HBP in mid-March, and he was given an estimated recovery timeline of 4-6 weeks. The backstop appears to be making strides toward reaching that target, and he expects to start hitting off velocity soon. Chirinos is likely to work out at the team's alternate training site upon his return -- even when healthy, he sat third on the Yankees' catching depth chart.
The Yankees re-signed Chirinos (wrist) on Monday to a minor-league contract, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Chirinos sustained a fractured right wrist earlier this month that ended his bid for making the Yankees' Opening Day roster, but he'll stick around at the organization's alternate site while he completes his rehab. According to Sherman, Chirinos expects to be available to play in games by late April or early May. Once healthy, Chirinos could unseat Kyle Higashioka as the backup to top catcher Gary Sanchez.
Chirinos (wrist) was released by the Yankees on Saturday. Chirinos underwent surgery on his fractured wrist earlier in March and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks as a result. Following his release, the 36-year-old will now be able to seek out opportunities in free agency.
Chirinos (fractured wrist) will have surgery Tuesday and could miss 4-to-6 weeks, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. He was the third catcher on the depth chart, so this doesn't affect the expected playing time to start the season, although it does solidify Kyle Higashioka's spot as Gary Sanchez's backup.
