Robinson Chirinos: Option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets will decline Chirinos' $6.5 million team option for 2021, making him a free agent, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

New York heads into the offseason without either of its top two catchers from 2020 on the 40-man roster, as Wilson Ramos also had his $10 million team option declined. After coming over in a Aug. 31 trade with the Rangers, Chirinos and Ramos essentially split work behind the plate over the final month of the season. Between his stops in Texas and New York, the 36-year-old slashed .162/.232/.243 over 82 plate appearances. Given his age and declining production at the plate, Chirinos may not receive the opportunity to serve as a No. 1 catcher for any team in 2021.

Mets' Robinson Chirinos: Powers offense from No. 9 spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Nationals.

Chirinos was the one to break through against Patrick Corbin, launching a two-run homer in the fifth, his first long ball of the season. The backstop followed up with an RBI single in the sixth, accounting for all of the Mets' scoring in the game. The highlights have been few and far between for Chirinos between Texas and New York, as evidenced by the fact his OPS is still below .500. He's a free agent after this season.

Mets' Robinson Chirinos: Splitting work with Ramos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos will start at catcher and will bat ninth Monday against the Phillies.

Chirinos has now alternated starts behind the dish with Wilson Ramos in the Mets' six games since joining the team Monday in a deadline-day deal with the Rangers. The two veteran backstops appear poised to work in a timeshare moving forward, as Mets manager Luis Rojas was reluctant to name either Ramos or Chirinos as the team's No. 1 catcher Monday, according to David Lennon of Newsday. Chirinos went 2-for-6 with a double and an RBI over his first two starts with the Mets.

Mets' Robinson Chirinos: Traded to Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets acquired Chirinos and cash from the Rangers on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Chirinos recently returned from the injured list and split time with Jeff Mathis in Texas over the past six games. It's unclear whether Chirinos will serve as the primary catcher for the Mets, especially since he's sputtered to a .119 batting average with two RBI over 14 games. Jose Trevino and Mathis should see an uptick in playing time for the Rangers going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos will be getting some routine maintenance in the day game after the night game, allowing Jeff Mathis to get a turn behind the dish. Over his three starts since returning from a stint on the injured list due to an ankle issue, Chirinos has gone 1-for-11 with a run scored.

Rangers' Robinson Chirinos: Back behind the plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos started at catcher and went 0-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Athletics.

This was Chirinos' first start behind the plate since returning from an ankle injury. He served as the designated hitter Monday before returning to his customary spot as Texas' primary catcher. Jose Trevino, who had been filling in for Chirinos, was the DH on Tuesday.

Rangers' Robinson Chirinos: Starts at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 in Monday's 3-2 win over the Athletics.

Rangers' Robinson Chirinos: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Chirinos was sidelined for two weeks with a sprained right ankle, but he should reclaim his role as the Rangers' primary catcher going forward. The team will keep three catchers on the 28-man roster for now, but Chirinos should presumably see the bulk of the playing time. The 36-year-old hit .129 with two RBI and 10 strikeouts to begin the season.

Rangers' Robinson Chirinos: Expected back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos (ankle) is expected to be activated Monday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The return of Chirinos, who hasn't played since Aug. 10, could alter the catching corps if the Rangers decide not to keep three catchers. They would either send Jose Trevino back to the alternate site, since he has minor league options remaining, or potentially let the 37-year-old Jeff Mathis go. The decision ultimately comes down to whether or not the Rangers, 10-17 and losers of eight straight, feel they are still competitive in 2020.

Rangers' Robinson Chirinos: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained right ankle Friday.

The move was made retroactive to Tuesday, so Chirinos could return as soon as next Friday, though it's not yet clear whether or not he's expected to do so. Jose Trevino was recalled in a corresponding move and will back up Jeff Mathis, who starts behind the plate Friday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is not playing Wednesday against the Mariners due to a sore left ankle, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
