Twins' Chris Gimenez: Continues hot spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's win over Boston. He's hitting .348 (8-for-24) this spring.

Gimenez is battling John Ryan Murphy for the backup job and looks like the clear leader at this point. Murphy is hitting just .211 (4-for-19) this spring.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Strong start to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 1-for-3 with a walk-off RBI single in Monday's spring training win over St. Louis. He's hitting .455 (5-for-11) this spring.

Gimenez will compete with John Ryan Murphy and Mitch Garver for the backup catcher role. Gimenez's veteran experience likely makes him the favorite, but the competition is unsettled early in spring training.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Joins Twins as NRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez signed a minor league contract with the Twins on Thursday that includes an invite to spring training.

Gimenez played at a below-replacement level last season, slashing .216/.272/.331 while striking out in 26.5 percent of his plate appearances. He is a slight positive behind the dish and will have a chance to compete with John Ryan Murphy for the backup role behind Jason Castro, but Gimenez is 34 and has never reached even 140 at-bats in any of his eight major league seasons, so there's little reason to think he will be fantasy relevant in 2017.

Chris Gimenez: Elects to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez opted to become a free agent after being outrighted off Cleveland's 40-man roster, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Gimenez didn't produce much at the plate in 2016 as he hit just .216/.272/.331 over 68 games. Due to his subpar hitting, Gimenez will likely provide depth behind the plate, rather than take on a starting role regardless of where he ends up.

Indians' Chris Gimenez: Outrighted off 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez was outrighted off the 40-man roster on Friday.

The Indians needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster after claiming a couple left-handed pitchers off waivers. Gimenez was clearly behind Roberto Perez and Yan Gomes on the depth chart, so it makes sense that he was a casualty. Look for him to serve as organizational catching depth going forward.
