Chirinos is not in the lineup Monday against the Rays. Chirinos will get a routine breather after starting the past two games behind the dish, going 2-for-6 with four RBI in those contests. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will start at catcher and hit eighth in his place.
Chirinos went 1-for-3 with a double and three RBI on Saturday against the Padres. Chirinos made his lone hit of the game count, doubling with the bases loaded to record his second multi-RBI game in the past seven games. He's done little in between, however, going just 5-for-25 in that span. He has split duties behind the dish with Isiah Kiner-Falefa of late, leaving Chirinos limited in both playing time and production.
Chirinos isn't in the starting nine for Friday's game against San Diego, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Chirinos will get the night off with Isiah Kiner-Falefa slated to handle the catching duties and bat eighth. Chirinos went 3-for-4 in his last start Wednesday against the Angels.
Chirinos is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels. The Rangers have started a catcher in back-to-back games just once since the start of August. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will get the call Tuesday, but Chirinos should be back Wednesday if the pattern continues.
