  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Emerges from slump

    Chirinos went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    Chirinos appeared in just eight games in July, going 2-for-22 with 10 strikeouts for the month. He's already off to a better start in August with a three-hit performance and his first homer since May 28. The backup catcher is slashing .168/.256/.282 with three long balls, 17 RBI, eight runs scored, a stolen base and eight doubles in 169 plate appearances this year. Even with a good stretch of hitting, Chirinos is unlikely to vulture away much of Adley Rutschman's playing time.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Not pushing for more time

    Chirinos is batting .206 (7-for-34) since the start of June.

    Chirinos had a couple of multi-hit games last month, but he's been held without a hit in seven of his last 11 contests. He won't get many chances to get in a rhythm, since Adley Rutschman commands a large share of the playing time behind the dish. Chirinos has posted a .159/.262/.270 slash line with two home runs, 15 RBI, seven runs scored and a stolen base in 43 contests, and he's likely to be limited to just two or three starts a week at most.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Swipes bag, cashes in four

    Chirinos went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a steal in a 7-6 loss to the Rays on Saturday.

    Chirinos had his best game of the year, racking up more RBI in four at-bats than he did in the entire month of April. The veteran catcher hit two doubles, a single and even stole his first base of the season. Chirinos remains firmly entrenched as the backup to star rookie Adley Rutschman.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: On base twice Saturday

    Chirinos went 1-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Royals.

    Chirinos entered Saturday 0-for-12 with two walks in his last four games. He's seen a reduction in playing time as the Orioles have committed to letting Adley Rutschman get plenty of starts behind the dish. With a .135/.242/.231 slash line, two home runs, 10 RBI and six runs scored in 36 contests, Chirinos is probably better suited to a backup role anyway, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to start more than a couple of times per week.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Two-run homer in loss

    Chirinos went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Chirinos took Nathan Eovaldi deep in the fifth inning for a two-run shot. The long ball was both his second of the year and second in his last five contests. Chirinos is now the clear backup option at catcher behind Adley Rutschman, making him an unappealing fantasy option regardless of his recent power surge.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Slated for backup role

    Chirinos is in line to serve as the Orioles' No. 2 catcher after Adley Rutschman's contract was selected Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Chirinos served as the Orioles' top catcher to begin the season, but he hit just .139 with a home run, six RBI and four runs over 28 games. The 37-year-old will remain on the active roster following Rutschman's promotion, while Anthony Bemboom was designated for assignment. However, Rutschman should see plenty of playing time right off the bat, so Chirinos is in line for a clear backup role.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Goes yard in win

    Chirinos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

    This was just the catcher's fourth hit in 11 games in May, but it erased an early two-run deficit in the second inning. Chirinos is now slashing .147/.264/.227 with a homer, six RBI, three runs scored and three doubles through 87 plate appearances. He's still the Orioles' top catcher, at least until Adley Rutschman gets the call to the big leagues.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Sits again Wednesday

    Chirinos is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Chirinos will sit for the second day in a row while Anthony Bemboom gets another turn behind the plate. The two backstops are expected to continue to split time in relatively equitable fashion until the Orioles are willing to promote catching prospect Adley Rutschman from Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Gets maintenance day

    Chirinos is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Anthony Bemboom will check in behind the dish as a replacement for Chirinos, who went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts while starting at catcher in both of the Orioles' last two games. Chirinos (.427 OPS in 82 plate appearances this season) and Bemboom (.479 OPS in 52 plate appearances) are merely keeping the seat warm at catcher until the Orioles are ready to promote top prospect Adley Rutschman from Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Robinson Chirinos: Resting Tuesday

    Chirinos is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

    After going hitless with a walk in Monday's 2-1 loss, Chirinos is now in an 0-for-14 drought at the plate over his last five starts. He still appears to have the edge on the No. 1 catcher's role, but Chirinos will cede duties behind the plate to Anthony Bemboom on Tuesday.
