|Foot injury no longer an issue for A.J. Pierzynski |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/10/14) Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski played Monday against the Rays for the second time in three games after missing a few days with a foot injury. Pierzynski had an RBI double in three at-bats and is batting .273 (3 for 11) through four spring games.

(3/4/14) Red Sox catchers A.J. Pierzynski and David Ross will miss the next few days of action while recovering from foot injuries, MLB.com reports.
Pierzynski rolled his left ankle Monday, reaggravating an injury that has bothered him this spring. He could return Friday.
"He's got a little bit of swelling in there today but this is a couple, three days maybe before he's back behind the plate," manager John Farrell told MLB.com. "The one thing is it's twice in camp that it's happened so we have to be a little more cautious right now."
Ross is suffering from left foot soreness, but he's expected to be back Friday.
"It was bothering me in the offseason. It got a little better, but as I was running … it's one of those things where I can run straight, but I can't really turn really good," Ross told MLB.com. "The ligament in there has been kind of aggravated. I've been running funny on my foot."

(3/4/14) Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski will not catch the past couple of days, according to the Providence Journal.
Pierzynski is dealing with ankle soreness. He was able to make his spring debut Saturday, despite the injury. He will not catch for a couple days, but could return soon.
Pierzynski hit .272/.297/.425 in 503 at-bats last year.
|A.J. Pierzynski goes hitless in spring debut |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski made his spring debut Saturday against the Twins, after overcoming a minor ankle issue from earlier in the spring. Pierzynski played the first five innings in the game, as scheduled, finishing hitless in three at-bats.
Pierzynski hit .272/.297/.425 in 503 at-bats for the Rangers a year ago, before signing a one-year deal with the Red Sox this offseason.
|After putting together career-best numbers as a 35-year-old in 2012, A.J. Pierzynski predictably came back down to earth in 2013, his one and only season in Texas. Of course, comparing his 2013 to his outlier year isn't the fairest assessment of the performance. Stacked against the rest of his career, it was one of his better seasons. His 17 home runs were his third-most for a full season and his 70 RBI were his fourth-most. And it wasn't just because he played half his games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. His home-away splits were fairly even. Now, he goes to Boston, where the park will work against him for the first time since he left San Francisco in 2004. Between that and his 37 years of age, another, less familiar step back is certainly possible for Pierzynski in 2014, though the fact he has yet to begin a true decline bodes well for him. Another 15-plus homers is probably too much to ask from him, but as long as he keeps his batting average in the .270-.280 range, where it's been the last six seasons, even a dozen would make him a worthwhile contributor in mixed leagues. He's not a top-12 catcher heading into 2014, but in two-catcher leagues, he'll get drafted.
