Cardinals | A.J. Pierzynski to sign Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 18:49:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, the St. Louis Cardinals will sign free-agent C A.J. Pierzynski (Red Sox) Saturday, July 26. He has already joined up with the club in Chicago.

FANTASY TIP: Pierzynski still has a little something left in the tank, and he obviously wasn't a fit (and he'll tell you and the team in an open letter) with the Red Sox. The veteran is an upgrade over Tony Cruz and George Kottaras to bridge the gap until Yadier Molina can return. He is a nice NL-only pickup at catcher, and still a serviceable No. 2 backstop in mixed formats.

FANTASY TIP: It is unknown if Quentin suffered an injury, but given his medical history, it wouldn't be shocking in the least to see him on the shelf again.
