2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
