News: Gimenez accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, John Blake of the Rangers' official site reports. Impact: The Rangers boast three capable catching options on the 25-man roster -- Robinson Chirinos, Geovany Soto and J.P. Arencibia (in a pinch) -- meaning Gimenez likely won't return to the majors until rosters expand in September, barring an injury. In any case, Gimenez will reside at Round Rock as organizational depth.(RotoWire, )

News: Gimenez is able to sign with any team after clearing waivers Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: The 31-year-old catcher has been with the Rangers this year, but it seems that he may be on the move. He'd be a good addition to a team that's lacking behind the plate, although he's spent the majority of the last two years in Triple-A.(RotoWire, )

News: Gimenez was reinstated from the paternity list and designated for assignment Thursday.

Arencibia available if a catcher is needed before Soto returns.(RotoWire, )
