The Texas Rangers fell to 53-88 on the season following a 7-5 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Friday. Injuries have taken their toll on the Rangers, who have 14 players on the disabled list. They also played on Friday without catcher Robinson Chirinos, who has been battling a sore neck for nearly a week.

As reported by T.R. Sullivan of, Chirinos received an injection in his neck on Thursday to help reduce the pain that his kept him sidelined for the past week. The injury occurred last Sunday when he took a foul ball of his mask in the game against the Astros.
"It really knocked my neck back. My mask hit my neck and I got a little muscle spasm. It has been hurting the last couple of days."
Tomas Telis and J.P. Arencibia have seen the playing time behind the plate in the absence of Chirinos. There is no word as to how much more time Chirinos will miss.

Chirinos, in his first full Major League season, is batting .232 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 82 games. He hit .179 in 28 at bats last season with the Rangers and .218 in 55 at bats with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011.
