 Biographical Information
Robinson Chirinos was signed by scout Hector Ortega for the Chicago Cubs in 2000 and began his pro career the following summer with the AZL Cubs. Originally an infielder, he was moved to catcher in 2009. Prior to the 2011 season, he was dealt to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of the trade that brought Matt Garza to Chicago. He reached the majors with the Rays that summer, making his debut on July 18 after another rookie catcher, Jose Lobaton, had injured his knee the previous day.
