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.

Texas Rangers C A.J. Pierzynski (abdominal) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained abdominal muscle. C Robinson Chirinos is expected to come up from Triple-A.
Fantasy Tip: The usually durable backstop has had an OK start with a .263-4-11. Abdominal injuries are freak things, though, and he should be fine in 2-3 weeks. DL him if you can, because he can catch fire in the Texas heat when he returns.
