On the disabled list for the first time in his 10-year career, A.J. Pierzynski is scheduled to visit with a specialist today to determine a recovery timetable for his fractured left wrist.

Pierzynski has said that he’s aiming to come off the DL when eligible on August 28 and Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that the catcher “has modified his workout routine by continuing to throw, performing leg exercises, and taking one-handed swings” while wearing a cast.

For now Tyler Flowers will serve as the White Sox’s primary catcher because Pierzynski’s usual backup/platoon partner, Ramon Castro, was already on the DL with a broken hand of his own.
