RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Chirinos' final numbers from 2014 were nothing to write home about, but he did finish with 13 home runs in just 93 games (338 PA), tying Shin-Soo Choo for the second on the team in homers, and a slugging percentage more than 100 points higher on the road (.467) than at Globe Life Park in Arlington (.364). His walk rate improve dramatically in the second half, jumping from 2.8% prior to the intermission to 8.7% after the All-Star break. The 30-year-old also played plus defense, putting him in the driver's seat for the starting role heading into 2015, ahead of Tomas Telis. More than likely, top prospect Jorge Alfaro will take the reins in 2016, perhaps relegating Chirinos to several years of backup duty, but Chirinos is on the radar at least in AL-only leagues.

2014

Acquired by Texas in April, Chirinos saw occasional time in the majors as an injury replacement. During his time at Triple-A last season, Chirinos showed a good eye at the plate (12.2% walk rate) with an acceptable .257/.356/.400 line, but his success hasn't translated yet to the majors, though the sample size is limited (90 at-bats over parts of two seasons). He could be an option for Texas if either Geovany Soto or J.P. Arencibia go down.

2012

Chirinos posted a solid, yet unspectacular double-slash line of .259/.343/.376 at Triple-A Durham before being promoted to the big club. He struggled against major league pitching, batting only .218 with one home run in 55 at-bats. With the Rays acquiring veteran Jose Molina during the offseason and Jose Lobaton ahead of him on the depth chart, Chirinos will likely start in Durham and will need an injury to see playing time with the Rays. A broken wrist in November shouldn't be an issue when he reports to camp in spring.
