Rangers | More on A.J. Pierzynski

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (oblique) landed on the disabled list with a Grade 1 right oblique strain. He dealt with an oblique strain last year but only missed three days. He'll be eligible to return from the DL May 21. C Robinson Chirinos, who was recalled to take Pierzynski's roster spot, can also play several infield spots if needed.

Fantasy Tip: Oblique strains are very tricky and can take plenty of time to come back from, so don't automatically Pierzynski to be ready on May 21. Chirinos could see occasional playing time behind Geovany Soto, but not enough to make him valuable in deep mixed formats.
