Rays Sign Chris Gimenez

The Rays signed catcher Chris Gimenez to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to Spring Training, according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune (Twitter link). Gimenez elected free agency earlier in the week, not long after the Mariners designated him for assignment.

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.

      They must’ve really not liked Jaso.

        After signing Molina they didn’t have much of a need for Jaso.

          Right, only to sign a guy that couldn’t even cut it for a horrible team.
