"The doctor said tomorrow, if it is bothering me, we'll get it X-rayed," Chirinos said. "If it was broken, I don't think I would have stayed in the game."
The Athletics had the bases loaded with nobody out when Boog Powell hit a grounder right at first baseman Joey Gallo. Gallo went for the out at the plate and the throw was high and to the third-base side of the plate. Chirinos caught the ball off the plate so he had to make a tag. He did so, but the ball jarred loose as Chapman came crashing into Chirinos' glove.
"He hit me, and it bent my wrist back," Chirinos said.
Chirinos is not expected to play on Thursday. He has played three straight games and was due for a day off. Juan Centeno will likely be behind the plate for Martin Perez.
