A.J. Pierzynski Fractures Wrist, Placed on Disabled List

The Chicago White Sox placed catcher A.J Pierzynski on the disabled list with a fractured left wrist.

Pierzynski, 34, goes to the disabled list for the first time in his 10-year career. He suffered the injury on Friday when he was hit by a pitch from Kansas City’s Bruce Chen.

Pierzynski, who is batting .296 with six home runs and 39 RBIs, leads American League catchers in games played (103) and innings caught (862 1/3).

The White Sox, who open a series against the Cleveland Indians at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday, recalled catcher Donny Lucy from Triple-A Charlotte. He joins rookie Tyler Flowers as the only catchers on the roster. Veteran backup Ramon Castro was lost for the season in July with a broken right hand and index finger.

Lucy, 29, was hitting .158 with four home runs and 9 RBIs at Charlotte.
