Pierzynski on the disabled list
The Rangers have placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the disabled list because of a strained oblique muscle. Pierzynski has a grade one strain, which is considered the mildest on a scale of 1-3. But the Rangers still think he needs to sit for two weeks and get rid of the problem. The Rangers have called up catcher Robinson Chirinos from Triple A. Pierzynski is eligible to come off May 21.
