    When Anthony Santander looked more closely at the black T-shirt Rougned Odor handed him in the clubhouse Friday, the Orioles outfielder belted out a laugh. The front of it featured a cartoon version of catcher Robinson Chirinos’ face with the words, “Robbie’s Playlist.” And on the back are all of the sayings Chirinos so frequently yells from the dugout during games — a major part of Baltimore’s energy as it entered Friday’s home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates a season-high three games over .500 and two games out of a wild-card spot.

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have signed catcher Robinson Chirinos to a one-year contract. The Orioles announced the move Monday. The 37-year-old Chirinos returns to the American League after playing 45 games for the Chicago Cubs last season. He hit .227 with five home runs. Chirinos played for the Mets and Rangers the previous year. He began his big league career with Tampa Bay in 2011, then played for Texas from 2013-2018 before spending 2019 with Houston.

He now joins a Baltimore team whose catcher of the future — former No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman — reached Triple-A last year. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.
