Chris Gimenez Elects Free Agency

The Mariners announced that catcher Chris Gimenez has declined an outright assignment and elected free agency. The Mariners had designated him for assignment last week to create 40-man roster space for Shawn Camp and Hong-Chih Kuo.

The Mariners non-tendered Gimenez in December, re-signing him to a Major League deal soon afterwards. The 29-year-old has a .171/.279/.272 line in 267 career plate appearances from 2009-11. He also has experience at first base and the corner outfield positions.
