Rangers | A.J. Pierzynski doesn't expect to miss much time

Texas Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (oblique) is hoping that he can play when he's eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list. "As long as he doesn't have to go up there (to the plate) aggravating it, it will probably get better," manager Ron Washington said. "He really wanted to play through it because he's done it before. We hope the 11 days helps." C Geovany Soto is ready for regular playing time with Pierzynski out at least 10 more days.

Fantasy Tip: Soto's window for increased playing won't be long, but oblique injuries can't be rushed back from, so stay tuned. Soto can be plugged into AL-only or two-catcher rosters for the short term, but don't expect a ton of offensive production.
