Anyway, A.J. Pierzynski has re-signed with the White Sox, according to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal (via Twitter ). The deal is for two years and $8 million.
PREVIOUSLY: With Adam Dunn on board and hoping to bring back Paul Konerko, it appears A.J. Pierzynski will not return to the White Sox next season. Pierzynski is "close" to signing with the Blue Jays, the Chicago Sun-Times ' Joe Cowley writes .
"I value A.J.. I would love to have him back," White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said on a conference call. "My delimma right now is do you take such an overture and let it take you out of the payroll zone that you may need to get a Paul Konerko back. We're in a holding pattern because to be honest, the next thing I would like to put back in a Sox uniform is Paul Konerko."
Cowley writes the team could pursue Miguel Olivo to bolster their backstop rotation of Tyler Flowers and Ramon Castro.
UPDATE: FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal adds a "not so fast" report, tweeting that the Jays are not close to a deal with Pierzynski and that the White Sox are still very much in the hunt to retain their catcher.
