A.J. Pierzynski is not retiring.
Pierzynski has already done some postseason broadcasting and will probably have a full-time career in that as soon as he hangs up his cleats, but Chris Cotillo of SB Nation is hearing that the 39-year-old catcher (40 next month) wants to continue playing. Pierzynski batted .219/.243/.304 in 259 plate appearances this past season for the Braves. He is currently a free agent. Mon, Nov 7, 2016 01:55:00 PM
