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

Advice: 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.

Red Sox designated C A.J. Pierzynski for assignment.

Advice: 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. Boston will have to eat the $3.6 million remaining on Pierzynski's contract once he 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 has been summoned from Triple-A.
