Cardinals | A.J. Pierzynski to sign Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 18:49:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, the St. Louis Cardinals will sign free-agent C A.J. Pierzynski (Red Sox) Saturday, July 26. He has already joined up with the club in Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski still has a little something left in the tank, and he obviously wasn't a fit (and he'll tell you and the team in an open letter) with the Red Sox. The veteran is an upgrade over Tony Cruz and George Kottaras to bridge the gap until Yadier Molina can return. He is a nice NL-only pickup at catcher, and still a serviceable No. 2 backstop in mixed formats.

Cardinals | Will research catcher market

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 13:32:10 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals intend to take time to research the market for a catcher, after losing C Yadier Molina (thumb) for an extended period of time. They do not need to make a move before the All-Star break. Seattle Mariners C John Buck could be a trade target.

Fantasy Tip: Buck has always been a solid source of power, but he struggles to hit for average. He would be worth an addition in NL-only leagues; if he joins the Cardinals. A.J. Pierzynski could also be an option for the Cardinals, as he was recently demoted by the Boston Red Sox. Pierzynski would also be a solid NL-only target, if he joined St. Louis.

Red Sox | A.J. Pierzynski cut

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 11:02:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox C A.J. Pierzynski will be designated for assignment, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski was in the midst of a pretty bad slump and only had four homers on the year. David Ross is the only other catcher on the active roster, so he should be expected to see the bulk of the work in the meantime. Ross is merely an AL-only commodity, at best.
