Rangers | A.J. Pierzynski still out

Texas Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (oblique) won't play Wednesday, May 8, due to a strained oblique muscle in his right rib cage. Pierzynski has missed five of the team's last nine games, but he doesn't think he needs a disabled list stint. C Geovany Soto is starting in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries are very tricky and can resurface if they aren't rested properly. Don't be surprised if Pierzynski misses more time or needs to go on the DL. Soto would obviously be the beneficiary, but his lack of plate skills makes him attractive only in two-catcher leagues or AL-only universes.
