Making his Cardinals debut, A.J. Pierzynski went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the Cubs on Saturday.
Pierzynski was great in his debut, and if can continue to hit well, he'll likely see ample playing time, as the only other option right now at catcher for the Cardinals is Tony Cruz, who has been very ineffective at the plate recently. That being said, Pierzynski isn't worth being rostered in most fantasy leagues, as his .254 average and just four home runs aren't very good. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
