Braves' A.J. Pierzynski: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pierzynski remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Colorado.

With lefty Tyler Anderson on the mound for the Rockies, the Braves will go with right-handed batter Anthony Recker behind the dish and give Pierzynski the night off. Right-hander Tyler Chatwood will toe the hill for Colorado in the series finale Sunday, so it's likely Pierzynski will be back out there in that one.

Braves' A.J. Pierzynski: Collects hit in sixth straight game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierzynski went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Saturday against the Rockies.

Pierzynski's first homer of the year gave the Braves a 2-0 lead in a game they'd eventually go on to lose. Despite struggling mightily this year, he's now hit safely in six straight games to move his slash line to .212/.233/.272.

Braves' A.J. Pierzynski: Shares starts at catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierzynski has gone 5-for-20 across seven games in July.

For much of the season, Pierzynski has been Atlanta's primary option at cacher when facing right-handed pitching. With fellow catcher Tyler Flowers dealing with a hand strain, Pierzynski could be in line to see more time behind the plate after the All-Star break. However, this is unlikely to lead to further run production on Pierzynski's behalf. Thus far, he's hitting just .205/.227/.250 and is part of the league's lowest scoring roster, as Atlanta averages just 3.4 runs per game.

Braves' A.J. Pierzynski: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pierzynski is in the lineup and batting sixth for Monday's game against the Reds.

Most of Pierzynski's playing time has come against right-handed pitching this season; he's posted a .218 average with 11 RBI and eight runs in such matchups. He will have an opportunity to do some damage Monday against the Reds' Daniel Wright, who is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA this season.
