A. J. Pierzynski C/DH BOS 7 Days

Red Sox released C A.J. Pierzynski.

Not surprisingly, the Red Sox were unable to find a trade partner after designating Pierzynski for assignment. The 37-year-old hit just .254/.286/.348 with four homers for Boston over 72 games for Boston, but he can be had at the veteran minimum now and should be scooped up by someone. However, he might not be able to find a starting job.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals are not interested in A.J. Pierzynski.

It was natural to connect the recently designated for assignment Pierzynski to the Cards following Yadier Molina's thumb injury, but there doesn't appear to be a fit. Pierzynski hit only .254/.286/.348 for the Red Sox and reportedly did not fit in well in their clubhouse.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox will designate A.J. Pierzynski for assignment.

Pierzynski has managed a poor .254/.286/.348 batting line with just four homers and 31 RBI this season, and the Sox have apparently decided they've had enough. The veteran catcher is making $8.25 million this year, and Boston will have to eat the remainder of that contract once Pierzynski clears waivers. Pierzynski, 37, figures to receive some interest on the open market, but it's possible he might not be able to find a starting job. Christian Vazquez is expected to replace Pierzynski on the roster.
