Report: Braves almost certainly won't trade C A.J. Pierzynski
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Surprising catcher A.J. Pierzynski will be sticking around unless the Braves are overwhelmed with an offer, according to USA Today, which is claiming that he has become too valuable to the organization on and off the field. He had previously been rumored to be on the trading block.

Pierzynski seemed to be winding down his career as a backup upon his arrival in Atlanta, but he quickly wrested the starting job away from Christian Bethancourt and has been performing well ever since. He has even batted cleanup on occasion.

He has compiled a slash line of .287/.325/.425 on the year and is currently on a six-game hitting streak.
