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 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.
