Jim Bowden is reporting (via MLB Trade Rumors) that the Rangers have reached an agreement with AJ Pierzynski, a player a number of Rays fans had high on their free agency wishlist. Details of the contract have not been reported.
Pierzynski never seemed like a good fit for the Rays unless he was willing to at least be a part-time DH. If given a choice, the Rays would prefer a all-glove, no-bat catcher over a good-bat, mediocre-glove catcher. And even then, the Rays may have still been outbid by other teams with more money to spend.
