Mariners Re-Sign Chris Gimenez

The Mariners have re-signed catcher Chris Gimenez to a Major League contract, reports MLB.com's Greg Johns. Seattle non-tendered Gimenez just two days ago.

“We had every intention of re-signing Chris,” said GM Jack Zduriencik. “There was just some procedural stuff that required us to non-tender him before we negotiated a new deal for 2012.”

Gimenez, 29 later this month, hit .203/.314/.271 in 70 plate appearances this year while seeing time at first base and left field as well as behind the plate. He's a .264/.343/.415 career hitter in 661 Triple-A plate appearances.
