Report: Red Sox to DFA A.J. Pierzynski
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are designating catcher A.J. Pierzynski for assignment Wednesday, according to FOXSports.com.

Pierzynski has struggled since signing a one year, $8.25 million deal with the Red Sox last offseason. Through 72 games, he is hitting just .254/.286/.348 , with four home runs. The Red Sox have 10 days to decide whether to trade, release or outright Pierzynski to the minors.

A.J. Pierzynski taking seat Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski owns a .333 lifetime batting average against Saturday starter Max Scherzer, but will not get a chance to improve it. He has been given the night off against Detroit in favor of David Ross. Ross has been used as the personal catcher for Boston starter Jon Lester.

Pierzynski has followed a hot streak with a cold one. He is 2 for 14 after slamming 18 hits in his previous 10 games.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski was tossed from Wednesday's game against the Indians, for arguing balls and strikes.

Pierzynski has been a solid contributor for the Red Sox, hitting .283/.310/.410 in 173 at-bats.
