It sounds like the first disabled list stint of A.J. Pierzynski‘s career won’t be a long one.
Pierzynski got a second opinion on his fractured wrist yesterday and has been cleared to resume baseball activities just three days after being placed on the DL.
Despite the “fracture” description Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago writes that “his injury isn’t considered serious” and Pierzynski’s stated goal of returning on September 1 seems doable.
Or as the veteran catcher put it: “They said I really can’t do anything worse to it, so the pain will go away and it won’t be a big deal.” Tyler Flowers shouldn’t get too comfortable with the starting job.
