Catching was one of the top priorities for the Texas Rangers this offseason and it is still a position the team is looking to fill.
The team reportedly met with free agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski on Tuesday, although it is unknown if any offer was made.
Pierzynski, who turns 36 in December, is coming off a season in which he hit .278 with 27 home runs and 77 RBIs for the White Sox. He joined the White Sox in 2005, and was their starting catcher during their World Series run.
Pierzynski would join Geovany Soto as the Rangers' primary catchers. They acquired Eli Whitesaid last week off waivers, and also have Luis Martinez on the 40-man roster. The Rangers top catching prospect is Jorge Alfaro, who spent last season at Low A Hickory.
Pierzynski would also add a left-handed bat to the Rangers' lineup, as the Rangers lost Josh Hamilton to the Angels.
