White Sox place Pierzynski on DL

The Chicago White Sox placed catcher A.J. day disabled list Tuesday with a fractured left wrist.

The 34-year-old suffered the injury on Friday when he was struck by a pitch in the third inning thrown by Kansas City's Bruce Chen.

It's the first time Pierzynski has landed on the DL in his career.

Pierzynski is hitting .296 this season with six homers and 39 RBI.

To fill the roster spot, the White Sox purchased the contract of catcher Donny Lucy from Triple-A Charlotte. He has played in 15 career games with the White Sox (2007 and 2010), batting .267 (8-for-30) with one home run.
