32-year old lefty swinging catcher A.J. Pierzynski might be one of the most hated players outside the White Sox’ clubhouse but they are glad they have him behind the plate. Pierzynski has played in 113 games for the White Sox this season and he is 128 for 410 (.312 avg, .804 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 13 homers and 38 RBIs. Pierzynski doesn’t miss the ball much with his bat as he has only whiffed 38 times this season. He might not be able to stop opposing running games with his arm but White Sox’ pitchers like throwing the ball to him.
