Rangers put veteran C Pierzynski on 15-day DL

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Texas Rangers placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday after an MRI exam revealed a strained right abdominal muscle.

Pierzynski was a late scratch before the Rangers' game Tuesday in Milwaukee and sat out again Wednesday after the test.

The 36-year-old Pierzynski was hitting .263 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 26 games for the Rangers, who signed him to a 1-year contract last December. The 16-year veteran has been on the disabled list only one other time in his career, missing 17 games due to a fractured left wrist in 2011.

With an off day scheduled Thursday, the Rangers are expected to summon catcher Robinson Chirinos from AAA Round Rock before their next game, Friday at Houston.
