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

Gimenez cleared waivers and was outrighted off the Twins' 40-man roster Monday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Gimenez appeared in 77 games as the Twins' backup catcher in 2017, hitting .220/.350/.382 with seven homers. The 34-year-old can refuse his outright assignment and become a free agent. He won't serve as anything more than a backup wherever he winds up in 2018.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Set to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gimenez has started just one of the Twins' last five games, as Jason Castro has been the club's preferred option behind the dish. Gimenez will have the chance to improve his weak .211 batting average and .698 OPS when Castro rests Tuesday.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is not in the lineup against the Blue Jays on Saturday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Gimenez will retreat to the bench following two straight starts behind the plate. In his place, Mitch Garver draws the assignment while batting eighth. Since the All-Star break, Gimenez is hitting .217/.280/.348 with one home run and three RBI in 16 games.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Getting on base more often than starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is slashing .196/.323/.366 with five home runs and 11 home runs in 112 at-bats during his first season in Minnesota.

Despite the low average, the on-base percentage is an impressive mark for a backup catcher, actually surpassing the .314 mark of normal starting backstop Jason Castro. Despite the success, as a 34-year-old catcher, Gimenez's age is likely preventing him from more consistent playing time behind home plate.

Twins' Chris Gimenez: Goes yard for second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to Boston.

Gimenez also homered Sunday, so the backstop might be kick-starting a hot stretch. While his fantasy value is limited because he doesn't play regularly, Gimenez's .334 wOBA and .767 OPS are decent marks for a catcher.
