Description: Cardinals catcher A.J. Pierzynski will get his second start behind the plate for injured Yadier Molina.
Insight: Pierzynski is a career .300 hitter with five home runs in over 30 playoff games, but he went 0-for-4 on Tuesday in Game 3.
 
10/14/2014 1:14:00 PM
Description: Cardinals catcher A.J. Pierzynski will get the start behind the plate for injured Yadier Molina.
Insight: Pierzynski had a poor season, but is a career .300 hitter with five home runs in over 30 playoff games. He's 5-for-18 (.278) in his career against Giants starter Tim Hudson.
 
10/10/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: The Cardinals added catcher A.J. Pierzynski to the NLCS roster.
Insight: Pierzynski will replace relief pitcher Sam Freeman. He will be the team's third catcher and be used as a pinch hitter. The catcher had a poor season, but is a career .300 hitter with five home runs in over 30 playoff games.
 
9/24/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Cardinals backup catcher A.J. Pierzynski might get a rare spot start Wednesday as he's a stunning 6-for-8 with a pair of home runs against Cubs ace Jake Arrieta.
Insight: With Yadier Molina back and healthy, Pierzynskli hasn't seen much work other than pinch hitting, but if he's in the lineup then he's worth a flier.
 
7/26/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Cardinals new catcher A.J. Pierzynski made a successful debut with three hits and an RBI.
Insight: With Yadier Molina (thumb) out, Pierzynski should see most of the starts behind the dish for St. Louis, but its been two seasons since he was a fantasy-worthy starter.
 
7/26/2014 12:58:00 PM
Description: Cardinals new catcher A.J. Pierzynski will start behind the plate on Saturday and bat sixth.
Insight: Pierzynski was cut by the Red Sox earlier this month after hitting .254 with just four homers, 31 RBI and a .634 OPS. He batted .272 with 17 homers, 70 RBI and a .722 OPS a season ago with the Rangers. With Yadier Molina (thumb) out, Pierzynski should see most of the starts behind the dish for St. Louis, but he's not an option in standard leagues.
 
7/25/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Catcher A.J. Pierzynski has signed with the Cardinals and will join the team Saturday, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Insight: Pierzynski was cut by the Red Sox earlier this month after hitting .254 with just four homers, 31 RBI and a .634 OPS. He batted .272 with 17 homers, 70 RBI and a .722 OPS a season ago with the Rangers. With Yadier Molina (thumb) out, Pierzynski should see most of the starts behind the dish for St. Louis, but he's not an option in standard leagues.
 
7/9/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have designated catcher A.J. Pierzynski for assignment.
Insight: Pierzynski has hit .254 with just four homers, 31 RBI and a .634 OPS after hitting .272 with 17 homers, 70 RBI and a .722 OPS a season ago with the Rangers. The Red Sox have called up prospect Christian Vazquez from Triple-A. Vazquez has hit .279 with three homers, 20 RBI and a .721 OPS in 66 games this season and isn't likely to offer much fantasy value.
 
7/6/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not in Sunday's starting lineup against Baltimore.
Insight: Pierzynski has been struggling mightily at the plate batting .253 on the season and lost a modest five-game hitting streak going 0-for-4 on Saturday.
 
6/30/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not in Monday's starting lineup against Jake Arrieta and the Cubs.
Insight: Pierzynski has been struggling mightily at the plate batting .249 on the season, but just .118 over the past two weeks. Unfortunately, he did have a very good history against Arrieta, going 4-for-5 with two home runs in their matchups.
 
6/17/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not in Tuesday's starting lineup against Phil Hughes and the Twins.
Insight: Pierzynski is just a .167 hiiter (3-for-18 - all singles) against Hughes, so he'll sit in favor of David Ross, who is 3-for-5 with a home run in his matchups with Hughes.
 
6/12/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski won't start Thursday against Cleveland.
Insight: Pierzynski has hit well at Fenway Park this season (.337 AVG in 92 at bats) so it's a shame he isn't starting. Maybe Pierzynski is sitting because he's just 1-for-5 against tonight's starter Josh Tomlin.
 
Hot6/1/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is out of the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Pierzynski has hit .409 (18-for-44) with five extra-base hits in his last 10 games and owns very good career numbers against Tampa Bay starter Erik Bedard, but he caught Saturday night and will get a day off Sunday.
 
Hot6/1/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski has batted .216 against lefties this season, compared to .321 against righties, but he's had success in the past against Tampa Bay southpaw Erik Bedard.
Insight: Pierzynski is 9-for-23 with two homers against Bedard and also has hit .409 (18-for-44) with five extra-base hits in his last 10 games. He may sit out Sunday after catching Saturday night, but make sure he's in your lineup if he's playing for Boston.
 
5/29/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: The Red Sox will use David Ross to catch Jake Peavy. Pierzynski is hitting .273 with four homers, 25 RBI and a .700 OPS this year. As long as you ignore his abnormal 2012 season, Pierzynski is on pace to produce about as expected (11-16 homers and 70-75 RBI).
 
5/27/2014 1:44:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not expected to start on Tuesday, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.
Insight: The Red Sox will use David Ross to catch Jon Lester. It doesn't hurt that Ross is 4-for-10 against Braves starter Aaron Harang. Pierzynski is hitting .267 with four homers, 24 RBI and a .692 OPS this year.
 
5/10/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is not in Saturday night's starting lineup.
Insight: Pierzynski is hitting .278 with three homers, 16 RBI and a .723 OPS this year. David Ross will be behind the plate, but his .182 batting average and .674 OPS should send fantasy owners running in the opposite direction.
 
5/4/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski homered Sunday against Oakland.
Insight: Pierzynski is hitting .291 with three homers, 15 RBI and a .748 OPS this year. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be much better than that.
 
4/29/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is a career .429 hitter (9-for-21) with a pair of homers versus Rays left-hander Erik Bedard.
Insight: Fantasy owners looking for Pierzynski to produce at his 2012 level (27 HR, 77 RBI, .827 OPS) will be disappointed, but he should be able to repeat last year's numbers (17 HR, 70 RBI, .722 OPS).
 
4/27/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski has done well against Toronto right-hander R.A. Dickey.
Insight: He has five hits in 12 prior at bats (.417). Pierzynski's 12 RBI ranks tenth among big league catchers. Four of those came yesterday on a third inning grand slam.
