Gimenez was traded to the Indians on Saturday for future considerations, the Fort Worth Star Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.
With Yan Gomes being placed on the 7-day concussion DL, Gimenez will join the Indians immediately to add some depth at catcher. Gimenez was slashing .262/.331/.355 with zero home runs in 34 games with the Rangers this season, before getting sent back down to Triple-A once Geovany Soto got healthy. Gimenez could see a few starts behind the dish while Gomes is out, and should act as the backup catcher once Gomes is healthy.
