Braves' A.J. Pierzynski: Agrees to deal with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Pierzynski agreed to a one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, pending a physical, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Signed by the Braves last offseason as a low-cost placeholder for Christian Bethancourt, Pierzynski ended up batting an even .300 in 407 at-bats, his best mark since 2009. His .339 OBP was his best since 2003. With Bethancourt still not looking ready for a primary role, Pierzynski will presumably serve as the starter again this season while perhaps returning to the middle of the Atlanta batting order.

Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals , Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

He'll likely be back on the mound for Game 2 to serve as the battery mate for Matt Wisler , but Ryan Lavarnway gets the nod behind the plate for the early game.

Catcher A.J. Pierzynski leads Braves to victory with two solo homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski was 3 for 3 with two solo homers in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Washington Nationals .

Pierzynski launched gopher balls off of Tanner Roark in the fourth and seventh innings, extending his modest hitting streak to seven games. The 38-year-old backstop celebrated his first multi-homer game of 2015, and fifth multi-hit outing of September. Pierzyski is finishing off his 17-year career with a productive season at the plate, posting a .299/.336/.429 line over 404 at-bats.

Braves C A.J. Pierzynski (shoulder) back in lineup vs. Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski (shoulder) is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Pierzynski missed a start Saturday, but that could very well have been more the left-handed starter on the mound for the Marlins than shoulder troubles for the 38-year-old. He'll bat cleanup as the Braves take on Marlins starter Tom Koehler.

Braves C A.J. Pierzynski exits game with bruised shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski left Friday's game with a bruised shoulder but could be available for Sunday's game, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Pierzynski was already expected to have the day off Saturday with a left-hander on the mound for the Marlins, but it appears Friday's shoulder injury won't keep him out long. If he sits out Sunday, Christian Bethancourt would likely step in behind the plate for Atlanta.

Pierzynski was 1 for 2 with a walk and a run scored before leaving the game.
