Gimenez was called back to the major leagues on Tuesday by the Texas Rangers from Triple A Round Rock of the Pacific Coast League. Gimenez was hitting .259 with four homers and 16 RBI in 31 games at Round Rock.

The Rangers sent J.P. Arencibia to Round Rock to make room for Gimenez. Veteran catcher Geovany Soto is currently on the disabled list for the Rangers with a knee injury.

Gimenez, who was a 19th-round draft pick out of Nevada in 2004, has played in 143 major leagues games. The 31-year-old has a .199 lifetime batting average in 331 at-bats with six homers and 30 RBI. He played in 2009 and 2010 with the Cleveland Indians before moving on to the Seattle Mariners (2011) and Tampa Bay Rays (2012, 2013).
