      Rangers' Chris Gimenez: Signs contract with Rangers

      Gimenez and the Rangers agreed on a $975,000 split contract Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports. Gimenez spent the last two months and the playoff run with the Rangers, and his performance earned him a one-year contract with the club for 2016. He appears to have cemented himself on the 40-man roster and will likely open up the 2016 season as the backup catcher behind Robinson Chirinos.

      Rangers C Chris Gimenez records three RBI in big win Saturday

      Rangers catcher Chris Gimenez had one of his best games of the season on Saturday, as he went 2 for 4 with a double, a walk, three RBI and two runs scored in a blowout win over the Mariners. Gimenez has been splitting playing time with Carlos Corporan, Robinson Chirinos, and Bobby Wilson all season, but he appears to be the go-to guy right now. Since Sept. 11, Gimenez has played in seven games and that's the most for any catcher by far. The numbers aren't atrocious either, as he maintains a .253 average and .845 OPS in 75 at-bats this season.
