Rangers | A.J. Pierzynski eyeing rehab stint

Texas Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (oblique) hopes to start his rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco Sunday, May 19, and he hopes to return from the disabled list Tuesday, May 21. "It's definitely gotten better," Pierzynski said. "From the time I did it, the doctors and the trainers said it would be a month, and Friday will be just about a month. Swinging the bat was the biggest thing, and I've been hitting the last couple days. Yesterday, it was free and easy."

Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries usually take some time to come back from, but Pierzynski is a quick healer. He'll return to full-time catching duties when he's back, pushing Geovany Soto to his usual backup role.
