Tampa Bay Rays
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Chirinos made his debut in 2018, with a mixed bag of results. The righty was a heavy groundball pitcher in the advanced levels of the minors, but was more neutral in the major leagues with a 43% groundball rate. He began the season in the rotation but missed time with an injury early in the summer, and returned to the team after they'd transitioned to using "openers", which is why he only started seven games. Advanced metrics show his entire repertoire is better than average, but it is his sinker which is his best pitch. His command was as inconsistent as you would expect from a rookie pitcher, which led to some hard contact problems. The defense behind him bailed him out quite a bit as his expected contact outcomes were nearly 30 points higher than his actual mark last season. He's an interesting late-round play, but that is where he stays until he gets more consistent with his command. Read Past Outlooks

PTampa Bay Rays
July 12, 2019
Chirinos (8-4) allowed two runs on four hits with no walks and eight strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory over the Orioles on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The Rays provided Chirinos with plenty of run support, so all he really had to do was last five innings, but the 25-year-old turned in his best outing since June 7. Before Friday, that was the last time Chirinos captured a win, but he's still been pitching well. Despite just a 2-2 record, he owns a 2.93 ERA in his last seven outings. Overall, he has a 3.11 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 107 innings this season. Chirinos will pitch next at the Yankees on Tuesday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
The Rays named Chirinos the organization's top minor-league pitcher in 2017, over Brent Honeywell, as he had a bounce-back year while spending the bulk of his season in the rotation at Triple-A Durham as a 23-year-old . Throughout his time in the Rays' organization, Chirinos has demonstrated the ability to limit free passes, and with a combined 168.1 innings between Montgomery and Durham last season, he should be without workload restrictions if the Rays need him to contribute in their rotation in 2018 with Honeywell and Jose De Leon out for the season following Tommy John surgery. With a four-pitcher arsenal that he commands very well, Chirinos may exceed expectations relative to his lack of a prospect pedigree.
