I have to admit that I didn’t expect much from Robinson Chirinos this year based on the numbers he put up last year in the Minor League. Chirinos had only 5 hits in 28 at bats during 13 games and a batting line of .179/.233/.286. In 2012 Chirinos could have made it to the majors with the Tampa Bay Rays, but due to a concussion he missed the entire season. However, Robinson Chirinos is making a strong case to be the third catcher for the Texas Rangers, even if he spends most of the time on the bench, I think his bat could help the Texas Rangers out greatly. Chirinos is batting .467/.529/.533 with 1 Run, 7 hits, 4 RBI in only 15 at bats. Clearly, Robinson Chirinos is not only impressing Ron Washington, but fans as well.
