About 13 hours after being behind the plate, A.J. Pierzynski will be back there Saturday morning as the Rangers and Angels try to beat the rain. Manager Ron Washington said that he never considered Geovany Soto catching the day game after a night game, in large part because "A.J. wanted to grind it out," Washington said. With Yu Darvish starting Sunday, Soto could be the Rangers' catcher.
