    Peter Abraham reported two of his sources saying it's unlikely Salty will return to the Red Sox.

    Red Sox To Sign A.J. Pierzynski By  Tim Dierkes [December 3 at 7:11am CST]

    The Red Sox have agreed to a deal with catcher A.J. Pierzynski, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  Pierzynski is represented by Steve Hilliard of Octagon.  The contract seems to close the door on Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who was acquired by the Sox at the 2010 trade deadline and is now a free agent.Terms are not yet known on Pierzynski's contract, but it's fair to suggest he could find two years withCarlos Ruiz getting three and Dioner Navarro getting two.  Pierzynski, 37 later this month, signed a one-year deal with the Rangers last offseason and went on to hit .272/.297/.425 with 17 home runs in 529 plate appearances.  As MLBTR's Steve Adams mentioned inPierzynski's free agent profile, he offers good power for the position and has displayed perhaps the best durability behind the dish in baseball.  Pierzynski will be paired with David Ross in Boston.  The contract represents the first free agent deal of the offseason for the World Champion Red Sox, who still need to address first base at the least with Mike Napoli a free agent.  The Twins and Blue Jays were reportedly among the other teams showing interest in Pierzynski this offseason.

    Pierzynski is already the seventh catcher to sign a Major League deal, following Brian McCann (Yankees),Carlos Ruiz (Phillies), Dioner Navarro (Blue Jays),Jose Molina (Rays), Brayan Pena (Reds), andFrancisco Pena (Royals).  Saltalamacchia now appears the only starting option on the free agent market, though it's possible the newly non-tendered J.P. Arencibia could get significant playing time with a new team in 2014.  In addition, the Reds seem likely to tradeRyan Hanigan.
