Rangers Put Veteran C Pierzynski on 15-day DL

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ The Texas Rangers placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday after an MRI exam revealed a strained right abdominal muscle.

Pierzynski was a late scratch before the Rangers’ game Tuesday in Milwaukee andsat out again Wednesday after the test.

The 36-year-old Pierzynski was hitting .263 with four home runs and 11 RBI in26 games for the Rangers, who signed him to a one-year contract last December. The 16-year veteran has been on the disabled list only one other time in his career, missing 17 games due to a fractured left wrist in 2011.

With an off day scheduled Thursday, the Rangers are expected to summon catcher Robinson Chirinos from Triple-A Round Rock before their next game, Friday at Houston.
