Yankees in talks to sign A.J. Pierzynski?

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Yankees are reportedly going after catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

The Yankees are reportedly trying to sign catcher A.J. Pierzynski, says Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune.

The Yankees interest in catching makes sense, as they just lost catcher Russell Martin to the Pirates, with whom he signed a two-year deal.

Pierzynski has been discussed as a good fit for the Yankees, as he features left-handed power.

Pierzynski, 35, hit 27 home runs last season while batting .278/.326/.501. He threw out 26% of would-be base-stealers, and is generally regarded as a good game caller.

He was famously traded by the Twins to the Giants for a package that netted them Francisco Liriano and Joe Nathan, as well as Boof Bonser. He signed as a free agent with the Chicago White Sox for the 2005 season, and has played for them ever since.
