Texas Rangers interested in A.J. Pierzynski


The most urgent decision involves catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who attracted interest from Texas recently. Pierzynski can become a free agent after this season, and the Sox would certainly like some compensation if they don’t re-sign him. Pieryznski, 33, can gain full trade veto rights on June 14 by virtue of his 10th anniversary as a major league player and spending at least the past five seasons with the same team. Pierzynski currently has a limited no-trade clause. … And then there are financial considerations. A source familiar with Texas’ murky ownership situation said it’s uncertain whether the Rangers could accept the balance of Pierzysnki’s $6.7 million salary because of a snag in the sale of the team.

Gonzales, also, touches on Mark Buehrle, Paul Konerko, Jake Peavy, Tyler Flowers, Jordan Danks, and  Dayan Viciedo.

Back to A.J. How about 1B/OF Mitchell Moreland (stats)?
