RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Gimenez spent the majority of 2012 at Triple-A Durham as the third catcher in the Rays' system. In the minors he had a strong year, hitting .310/.389/.483 with 10 home runs and 49 RBI. In addition to catching, he has experience playing both corner outfield and infield spots. He did not have his best performance in the beginning of the season at the big league level filling in for an injured Jose Lobaton, but returned in a September callup with a hot bat (1.066 OPS in 18 games). The Rays could look into adding a veteran catcher, but for now Gimenez will likely stay around Triple-A with Jose Molina and Jose Lobaton ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.

2012

Gimenez provided quality catching depth for the Mariners last season and likely will reprise that role again this year. With Miguel Olivo and John Jaso handling the catching duty, though, Giminez likely will have to hang out at Triple-A Tacoma until he's needed (discounting the unlikely event that Mariners carry three catchers). Adam Moore, who missed nearly all last season with an injury, is in the mix, as well.

2010

Gimenez had been playing the role of organizational soldier, serving every role other than team barber, for the better part of five years before finally getting the call in 2009. He's a career .267/.380/.463 hitter in the minors, but hasn't done any damage above Double-A and hit just .144 in 111 at-bats for the Indians. He can play catcher, first base, third base and the corner outfield spots without embarrassing himself so he figures to give the Indians a cheap, jack-of-all-trades option in a utility role.
