Merkin @ CWS:

The White Sox placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a fractured left wrist and purchased the contract of catcher Donny Lucy from Triple-A Charlotte.

This marked Pierzynski’s first career trip to the disabled list. The 34-year-old catcher, whose placement on the DL was retroactive to Saturday, suffered the injury Friday against Kansas City, when he was hit by a Bruce Chen pitch in the third inning.

The legend of Cy Chen grows…

UPDATE: Herm Schneider says Pierzynski could return on August 29 because the fracture is more of a “compression” fracture.
