Cardinals sign veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski

CHICAGO (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals have signed veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

Pierzynski, 37, was in the starting lineup and batting sixth for the Cardinals' afternoon matchup against the Chicago Cubs. Catcher George Kottaras was designated for assignment to make room on the roster.

The Cardinals have been looking for a steady presence behind the plate since All-Star Yadier Molina went down with a torn ligament in his right thumb on July 9. Molina underwent surgery on July 11 and is expected to miss 8-12 weeks.
