Robinson Chirinos- C, Texas Rangers (free agent)

Instead of staying back to rest for his free agent year, Chirinos will be one of three catchers going to Japan. Chirinos is taking a bit of a risk in going as if he were to get injured, his value would plummet. With the Rangers last season, he struggled to a .222/.338/.438 with 18 home runs. Chirinos also struck out a whopping 38.9 percent of at bats and only caught 10 percent of base runners.
