Hot Stove: A.J. Pierzynski set to leave White Sox for Rangers

Posted By Jerry Spar On December 21, 2012 @ 9:22 am In General | No Comments

Veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski reportedly has a one-year deal with the Rangers [1], pending a physical. Pierzynski, who turns 36 on Dec. 30, hit .278/.326/.501 with 27 home runs and 77 RBIs in 135 games last season.

Pierzynski would seem to be a replacement for Mike Napoli, whose deal with the Red Sox has yet to be announced.

In 15 big league seasons with the Twins (1998-2003), Giants (2004) and White Sox (2005-12), Pierzynski has hit .284/.324/.429 with 155 home runs and 730 RBIs. He’s a two-time All-Star (2002, ’06) and he won a Silver Slugger in 2012.
