A.J. Pierzynski (#111) might be better served to stick with commentary.

The White Sox have one more year of Pierzynski, and it will be interesting to see what they do after that. Tyler Flowers has not emerged as the hitter the Sox had hoped, and despite the fact that he is a slight upgrade defensively I don’t know that anyone is convinced he is the future yet.
