The Rangers have announced that they’ve designated catcher Chris Gimenez for assignment. He had been on the paternity list since Monday.
Gimenez collected 118 plate appearances for the Rangers this season, hitting .262/.331/.355. The 31-year-old journeyman has also played for the Indians, Mariners and Rays. Geovany Soto, who suffered a groin injury in July, is five games into a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock, and the Rangers could soon reinstate him to take Gimenez’s spot on the Rangers’ active roster.
