White Sox designated C Hector Gimenez for assignment.

Gimenez has batted a meager .191/.275/.338 as Tyler Flowers' backup. The 30-year-old will likely clear waivers and remain in the organization.

Hector Gimenez went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored Sunday against the Marlins on Sunday.

Gimenez started all three games of the series in place of Tyler Flowers, who is dealing with a back issue. White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Flowers was being held out as a precaution, and noted that Flowers could have entered the game if Gimenez had gotten hurt. Gimenez had a career game on May 18 against the Angels, going 4-for-5 with a homer. In his three-game starting gig over the weekend against Miami, he was 1-for-8 with a walk, a run and an RBI.

Hector Gimenez left Monday's game after being hit on the left shin by a pitch.

Gimenez was unable to put much weight on the leg as he limped to the dugout. That said, he should be fine and wouldn't be due for another start for a while, anyway.

Hector Gimenez is expected to serve as the primary backup to White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers in 2013.

Despite playing just 11 major league games in his career, the 30-year-old backstop is in a position to earn his first significant playing time. A capable defender, who can also play the outfield in a pinch, Gimenez does have upside offensively. He's smashed 41 homers and driven home 183 runs over the last three seasons in the minor leagues, spanning 259 games. Should Tyler Flowers prove incapable of handling the job full-time, Gimenez could have value in deep two-catcher formats.

White Sox purchased the contract C Hector Gimenez from Triple-A Charlotte.

Gimenez will backup A.J. Pierzynski with Tyler Flowers on the paternity list. It's possible he could stick when rosters expand this weekend, but he's nothing more than organizational depth.
Thu, Aug 30, 2012 10:59:00 AM

White Sox signed C Hector Gimenez to a minor league contract.

He's likely to get an invite to spring training, but only to serve as an extra backstop in camp. Gimenez picked up one hit in seven at-bats for the Dodgers last season in what was his first appearance back in the majors since 2006. He's merely organizational depth.

Gimenez underwent right knee surgery in late April before returning to action a week ago. He was with the Dodgers early this season but is no guarantee to make it back later this year.
Sat, Jun 11, 2011 09:37:00 AM

Dodgers transferred C Hector Gimenez from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

The Dodgers made the move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Gimenez underwent right knee surgery at the end of April and was expected to miss around 3-6 weeks.
Fri, May 13, 2011 05:34:00 PM

Hector Gimenez will undergo surgery on his right knee Tuesday.

It's not clear at this point what type of procedure he'll have or how long he'll be out, though he is expected to return at some point this season. Rod Barajas and A.J. Ellis will continue to handle the catching duties for the Dodgers.
