CHICAGO -- White Sox catcher Hector Gimenez is out of the game after he was hit on his lower left leg by a pitch from Indians right-hander Justin Masterson in the seventh inning.

Gimenez rolled around on the ground for a second after the ball appeared to strike on the lower part of his shin. He then got up and was helped from the field.

Blake Tekotte came in to run and Tyler Flowers replaced Gimenez behind the plate in the bottom half of the inning on Monday night.
