Robinson Chirinos has a career slashline of .234/.329/.439. After spending most of his career with the Texas Rangers, he spent last season with the Houston Astros.
The 6’1″ Venezuelan catcher has been in the majors since 2011, but has never played in more than 114 games, achieved this season with the Astros. Now 35-years-old, Chirinos hasn’t beat the league average for throwing out baserunners since 2014, and has fallen well short of that mark in each of the last two years.
There’s not a huge market for catchers at Chirinos’ age, and I’m afraid he’s no upgrade over the recently free-agent declared Bryan Holaday, at least not defensively. He’s probably not going to get a good multi-year deal anywhere, but someone is going to pick him up for a one-year contract. That someone could be the Marlins.
