A.J. Pierzynski to Rangers, good fit?

I’ve personally been curious why A.J. Pierzynski hasn’t flown off the shelf this free agent season.  The numbers are there, especially for a catcher (.278, 28 HR, AL Silver Slugger).  128 or more games for 11 straight years.  He’s a consummate catcher in terms of pitching management and working the strike zone for his pitcher.  He’ll even work dropped strike three calls...

Pierzynski meets with Rangers

ARLINGTON -- The Rangers met with free agent A.J. Pierzynski and his representatives Tuesday, hoping to lure the 35-year-old catcher to Arlington to boost the offense. The left-handed-hitting Pierzynski enjoyed the best season of his career last season with the Chicago White Sox, hitting .278 with 27 home runs while driving in 77 runs. However, he threw out just 19 of 76 (20 percent...

Are Dodgers shopping Andre Ethier?

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear capable of anything. Even a trade of right fielder Andre Ethier is not out of the question.

However, one official with knowledge of the Dodgers' thinking...

Report: Dodgers shopping Andre Ethier, which makes some sense

There have been whispers the Dodgers have been shopping Andre Ethier basically the entire winter. Today, those whispers got even louder. From Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (surprisingly enough): "Source: Dodgers shopping Andre Ethier. If they deal him, they could be in the mix for Nick Swisher." Mike Petriello said he also heard the team is shopping...

Report: Rangers, Pierzynski agree to deal

Free-agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski reportedly has agreed to a one-year contract with the Texas Rangers. The deal hinges on a physical set for Friday, CBSSports.com and MLB.com reported. Terms were not available. Pierzynski is expected to compete for the starting catcher job with Geovany Soto, who was acquired last July from the Chicago Cubs. The 35-year-old Pierzynski has played...

Dodgers, Mariners talked Ethier

  Earlier this week, a source told FOXSports.com that two American League teams had been in recent touch with the Los Angeles Dodgers about a trade for right fielder Andre Ethier.   One of those teams was the Seattle Mariners, but the talks failed to progress, major-league sources say. The other team is not known.   Ethier, 30, would be an excellent fit for the Mariners, who had...

Texas Rangers sign A.J. Pierzynski away from White Sox

The Chicago White Sox are hoping that Tyler Flowers hits better than .100 next season, because he’s the new full time catcher on the south side. A.J. Pierzynski is off to the Texas Rangers, for a one year deal, pending the physical. His remarkable eight-year run with the White Sox is now over. When Opening Day comes next April, Paul Konerko will be the last remaining player from...

Dodgers Already Shopping Ethier?

The New York Daily News’ Mark Feinsand just tweeted that the Dodgers might be looking to move Andre Ethier, with a possible view to getting involved in the Nick Swisher sweepstakes. That’s the same Andre Ethier they signed to a five-year $85 million extension in June. The obvious caveat here is that this could well be part of the general winter chicanery that teams go through...

Dodgers taking calls on Andre Ethier

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear open to moving outfielder Andre Ethier, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. He adds that if they are able to move Ethier, they could end up pursuing Nich Swisher.

Report: Dodgers Shopping Andre Ethier, Which Could Lead to Run at Nick Swisher

The Los Angeles Dodgers aren’t done their offseason overhaul just yet apparently.
