A.J. Pierzynski returns Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski has returned to the team’s starting lineup Friday.

Pierzynski sat in favor of David Ross Thursday. While it may have been a routine day off, the team was facing a left-handed pitcher, so Pierzynski could see time off against lefties throughout the year. He’ll hit eighth against Marco Estrada Friday.

A.J. Pierzynski impatience continues in Boston
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox new starting catcher A.J. Pierzynski hasn't exactly been the picture of patience to start the 2014 season. He has seen just 20 pitches in eight at-bats, per 98.5 The Sports Hub. He saw five pitches in one of those at-bats, leaving 15 in his other seven plate appearances.

Pierzynski is off to a so-so start. He is batting .250 with no extra-base hits. His swing-at-anything approach is nothing new. He has never walked more than 28 times in any season since starting his major league career in 1998. He earned just 11 walks in 503 at-bats with Texas last year.

A.J. Pierzynski, David Ross dealing with foot injuries
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox catchers A.J. Pierzynski and David Ross will miss the next few days of action while recovering from foot injuries, MLB.com reports.

Pierzynski rolled his left ankle Monday, reaggravating an injury that has bothered him this spring. He could return Friday.

"He's got a little bit of swelling in there today but this is a couple, three days maybe before he's back behind the plate," manager John Farrell told MLB.com. "The one thing is it's twice in camp that it's happened so we have to be a little more cautious right now."

Ross is suffering from left foot soreness, but he's expected to be back Friday.

"It was bothering me in the offseason. It got a little better, but as I was running … it's one of those things where I can run straight, but I can't really turn really good," Ross told MLB.com. "The ligament in there has been kind of aggravated. I've been running funny on my foot."
