Twins' Chris Gimenez: Hits first home run of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 1-for-4 with his first home run of the season in the second game of Sunday's split doubleheader against Kansas City.

Gimenez is hitting just .200 with a .654 OPS, but there's been no talk of him losing the backup catcher role. His early season slump likely ends any speculation he may platoon with starter Jason Castro, however.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Gets starting nod Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is batting fifth for the Twins against the White Sox on Saturday.

The 34-year-old journeyman will make just his third start of the season, spelling regular starter Jason Castro. Although his playing time has been limited, Gimenez has still been able to produce this season. He has three hits in nine at-bats, along with two RBI and four walks.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Officially joins major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez had his contracted purchased by the Twins on Sunday.

Gimenez was recently informed that he had won the team's backup catcher and first base roles to open the season. He will slot behind Jason Castro at catcher for the foreseeable future, but will likely lose his reserve first base role when Kennys Vargas returns to the majors.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Wins Minnesota's backup catcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez has won Minnesota's backup catcher job and may also serve as the backup at first base with Kennys Vargas dealing with a toe injury and Byungho Park sent to the minors, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

John Ryan Murphy was sent to the minors after Gimenez outperformed him this spring. Gimenez may not get much time at first base as Vargas may not be out long.

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.
