A person familiar with the deal says Robinson Chirinos and the Texas Rangers are close to reuniting on a $6.5 million contract. The deal with the veteran catcher is pending a successful physical. Chirinos spent last season with the AL West rival Houston Astros. Chirinos will make $5.5 million this season. The deal has a 2021 option worth $6.5 million that includes a $1 million option. Chirinos spent six seasons with the Rangers before signing last winter with Houston. He had become a free agent after the Rangers declined to exercise a club option to keep him.
