Pierzynski (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Saturday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster and officially ends Pierzynski's season. It was a disappointing season for the 39-year-old, as he slashed just .219/.243/.304 following a resurgent campaign in 2015. He has not officially announced his retirement, but this may very well be it for Pierzynski.
