A.J. Pierzynski Injury: Fractured Wrist Sends White Sox Catcher To DL

Aug 16, 2011 - On Friday, Bruce Chen hit A.J. Pierzynski on the right wrist with a pitch. This is because Chen is a pitcher, and pitchers aren't perfect. It wasn't because he empathized for the common fan, the ticket-buying shlub who will never know what it's like to hit Pierzynski with a projectile. Chen wasn't trying to allow us to live vicariously through him. Put away those conspiracy theories and urban legends. But no one would have wished the outcome of the HBP on Pierzynski: after the initial x-rays came back negative, further tests showed a fractured right wrist, and the White Sox placed the catcher on the 15-day DL.
