Braves, A.J. Pierzynski agree to deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Braves have agreed to a deal with catcher A.J. Pierzynski, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports. Pierzynski's deal is expected to be for about $2 million, but it won't be finalized until January.

Pierzynski will fill a veteran presence to complement young catcher Christian Bethancourt, and the agreement also means the Braves are serious about moving forward with Evan Gattis in left field full-time, according to Eye On Baseball.

Pierzynski hit .251/.288/.337 in 338 at-bats between Boston and St. Louis in 2014. However, he managed to smack a combined 44 home runs over his previous two seasons.

Cardinals C A.J. Pierzynski added to roster for NLCS
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski has been added to the Cardinals roster for their National League Championship Series against San Francisco. He will replace reliever Sam Freeman and serve as the third catcher.

Mike Matheny explained that he wanted another experienced bat available. Pierzynski also brings a bat that has hit well in the postseason. He owns a .300/.372/.520 stat line with 17 RBI in 30 career postseason games.

Pierzynski will most likely be used as primarily a pinch-hitter.
