Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left oblique strain, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Chirinos exited Wednesday's game with the injury. Considering he'll be eligible to return from the IL with only a couple games remaining in the regular season, it's very possible the veteran catcher has seen his last action of 2021. If so, Chirinos finishes the season with a .227/.324/.454 slash line and five home runs in 112 plate appearances.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Leaves with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was removed from Wednesday's loss to the Twins with an apparent left side injury, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

Chirinos went 0-for-2 before suffering the injury during the seventh inning while at the plate, and he was forced to exit during the middle of his at-bat. The 37-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Goes deep Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Chirinos connected in the eighth inning with a runner on for his fifth home run of the season, which tied the game at 4-4. The veteran catcher has been relegated to a backup role with Willson Contreras back healthy, so Contreras can probably be avoided in most fantasy leagues due to the lack of playing time, though he could be a budget option in daily formats on days when he's in the starting lineup.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Losing work to Contreras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos remains on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Chirinos had been splitting work behind the dish with Austin Romine for about three weeks, but both players will see their opportunities take a hit after Willson Contreras was reinstated from the injured list Saturday. Since Contreras returned, Chirinos has picked up only one start in five games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Chirinos will take a seat after making three straight starts behind the plate. Austin Romine enters the lineup in his place, batting seventh. Chirinos has been serviceable for the Cubs and fantasy managers with Willson Contreras (knee) out, as the former has slashed .250/.357/.486 across 34 games.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is not in the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Chirinos has a modest four-game hit streak in which he's gone 8-for-15 with a homer, three doubles, three RBI and four runs, but he'll take a seat for Friday's contest. Austin Romine will work behind the plate in his place.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Back in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Chirinos got a breather Saturday but will return to the lineup Sunday, bumping Austin Romine to the bench. With Willson Contreras (knee) on the injured list, Chirinos should continue serving as the team's top catcher with Romine as the backup. Chirinos has done well offensively with a .956 OPS and four home runs in 25 games.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Records four hits, home run Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos went 4-for-6 with two doubles, a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the Marlins.

Chirinos had his best game in a Cubs uniform, and it was just his second multi-hit performance of the season. The 37-year-old catcher should see more playing time in the near term with Willson Contreras (knee) on the injured list, though Chirinos shouldn't be expected to replicate Friday's line anytime soon considering he entered the contest batting just .184 this year through 24 games.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos is starting Thursday's game against Milwaukee.

Chirinos will likely serve as the Cubs' primary catcher going forward after Willson Contreras (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, while Austin Romine (wrist) was reinstated from the 60-day IL to serve as another option behind the dish. The 37-year-old has gone 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts across the last two games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in Friday's 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Chirinos had homered just once since he joined the Cubs in early July, but he flashed his power in Friday's blowout win with home runs in the fourth and sixth innings. The 37-year-old has gone 6-for-16 with three home runs, four RBI and four runs across 11 games with the Cubs.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Homers as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos hit a solo home run in his only at-bat during Tuesday's 15-10 loss to Philadelphia.

Chirinos' pinch-hit blast went to center field in the ninth inning, but the Cubs were unable to rally. The catcher began the year in the Yankees' organization with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He posted a career-worst .162/.232/.243 slash line in 82 plate appearances between the Mets and the Rangers last season. Chirinos will likely serve as Willson Contreras' backup at catcher going forward.

Cubs' Robinson Chirinos: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos signed a one-year contract with the Cubs on Monday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Chirinos began the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and slashed .278/.422/.556 with three home runs, six RBI and six runs in 13 games. He was away from the minor-league club for several weeks in June to play with the Venezuelan national team, and he'll land a major-league contract a day after he was let go by the Yankees. The 37-year-old will serve as the Cubs' backup catcher after Taylor Gushue was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Robinson Chirinos: Parts ways with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees' Robinson Chirinos: Away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chirinos was placed on the temporary inactive list Sunday at Triple-A Scranton Wilkes/Barre, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

The veteran backstop will be playing with the Venezuelan national team in an Olympic qualifier, so he'll step away from the RailRiders for a bit. Chirinos is batting .278/.409/.556 with three homers in 44 plate appearances for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.
