Pierzynski, who turns 36 on Dec. 30, had 27 homers and 77 RBIs in 2012 with the Chicago White Sox. The 27 homers were a career high and the 77 RBIs tied a career high set in 2004 when he was in San Francisco. He made $6 million last season.
Pierzynski would give the Rangers a veteran bat in the lineup and behind the plate. He's also a left-handed hitter with power, which wouldn't be a bad thing for a right-handed heavy team that just watched Josh Hamilton, a left-handed power bat, sign with the Angels.
The Rangers are still trying to fill a hole at one of the catching spots. They re-signed Geovany Soto, but Mike Napoli agreed to terms with the Boston Red Sox (that deal has still not been finalized).
