Poll: How do you feel about the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
|12.03.13 at 12:32 pm ET|
The Red Sox have agreed to a one-year, $8.25 million deal with catcher A.J. Pierzynski, a move that effectively ends the Red Sox tenure of Jarrod Saltalamacchia. At the heart of the decision was the Sox’ preference to sign a starting catcher on a short-term deal of one or two years, rather than fulfilling Saltalamacchia’s desire for a contract of three or more years.
