Pierzynski Signing Reax [VIDEO]

The Red Sox have signed veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski to a one year $8 million deal and that likely means the end of the Salty days in Boston. The free agent Pierzynski hit .272 with 17 home runs and 70 RBI in 134 games for Texas last year.

Pierzynski is a 16-year veteran. A lefthanded hitter who fits with righthanded hitting David Ross to give the Sox a bridge to Christian Vazquez, who the Sox think can be their next full time catcher.

Salty wanted a longer term contract and reports out of Boston were that the Sox would only go for a 2-year deal with him.

The good and bad on Pierzynski – he’ll strike out about half as much as Salty but his on base percentage is low and he sees the fewest amount of pitches on any player in MLB.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.com was first to report the Pierzynski signing.
