Profile: At the plate, Chirinos is not unlike a poor man's Brian McCann. Both post a low batting average, an acceptable on-base percentage, and feature between 20-30 home run power. While McCann's defense is worthy of an everyday role, Chirinos' defensive ability is below average. In 2014 and 2016, he was one of the worst catchers at pitch framing (he was only slightly below average in 2015). Between injuries and indifferent defense, Chirinos has never exceeded 338 plate appearances in a season. Hence why he's never actually hit 20 home runs despite possessing the necessary talent. With Jonathan Lucroy moving in last summer, Chirinos has an impossibly uphill battle for playing time and can be left on the waiver wire. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: Fantasy owners in Sunday-only leagues may want to invest in Chirinos as perhaps the best hitting backup catcher in baseball.
