The Texas Rangers re-signed catcher Chris Gimenez today. The Rangers claimed him off waivers on March 28 from the Oakland Athletic, which was near the end of spring training.
Opening day: The Rangers kept him on the Opening day roster but designated him for assignment on April 1 and brought up RHP Daniel McCutchen from Round Rock at that time. At that time, Gimenez could have been sent to Triple-A Round Rock, but opted out and instead became a free agent.
Trade bait: An interesting thing now with Gimenez, the Athletics seem to be interested in him. This could open up a chance for a trade. Nothing official about a trade, but could open the door for some options.

Round Rock: Now, just about a week since Chris Gimenez cleared waivers and became a free agent he is back with the Texas Rangers. Again, he has been assigned to Triple-A Round Rock. Gimenez joins catches Brett Nicholas and Chris Snyder.
