Pierzynski to serve as playoff analyst

BY foxsports • October 3, 2011

Outspoken White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski will serve as a television analyst during the Major League Baseball playoffs.

The 14-year veteran will work on Fox's pre- and postgame shows during the ALCS and the World Series.

Pierzynski started for Chicago's 2005 championship team. FOX said Monday he would make his debut on-site before Saturday's Game 1.

Fox Sports executive vice president Scott Ackerson calls the two-time All-Star ''intelligent, engaging and candid with a bit of an edge.''

In 30 career postseason games, Pierzynski has hit .300 with five home runs, 17 RBIs and 16 runs.
