“This was an opportunity that really excited me from the moment I found out about it. The American Association is a highly competitive league and I’m really looking forward to the challenge of being the new team and competing to win day in and day out. Everyone in the organization is hungry for success and as a player, it’s motivating to know that everyone around me wants to win championships just as much as I do.”

Gimenez, a 30-year-old Venezuelan-born catcher, has more than 12 years of professional baseball experience under his belt. He joins the DockHounds after spending the last two seasons with Tigres de Aragua in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Gimenez does have experience in the American Association – he’s played three seasons in the league, suiting up with both the Gary SouthShore RailCats and the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Prior to that, he spent time with the Jacksonville Suns, the Jupiter Warheads, the Greensboro Grasshoppers and the Jamestown Jammers.

With over 650 career games played, Gimenez brings experience behind the plate, elite defense, and veteran leadership to the DockHounds.
