The St. Louis Cardinals and former Boston Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski are close to signing a deal that would bring Pierzynski to St. Louis. The Red Sox released him after he posted subpar numbers with the Red Sox. Now the Cards are hoping to get a full-time major league catcher who can take over as Yadier Molina went on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his thumb.
Per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports as announced that the deal has been finalized.
Pierzynski joining #STLCards tomorrow. Already in Chicago.
