Boston Red Sox are poised to sign veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski, according to reports.

The 36-year-old, who was most recently at Texas Rangers, is currently a free agent - and with the Red Sox only in the market for a short-term option, Pierzynski has been identified as the perfect acquisition.

The New York-born catcher is likely to be open to the idea of joining the reigning World Series champion, who currently have two promising catching prospects on their books.

Blake Swihart and Christian Vazquez are rated highly, while the Red Sox also have David Ross in reserve.

However, if Pierzynski doesn't sign for the Red Sox, the World Series champion may opt to bring back Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who was a member of their championship team last year.

But Pierzynski looks to be the Red Sox number one option - and, if reports are to be believed, his signing will soon be announced.
