A.J. Pierzynski's future uncertain after trip to DL

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves have placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Pierzynski wouldn't say after Saturday night's 10-inning victory over the Mets whether he has played his last game.

The 39-year-old wasn't at the ballpark Sunday, but his jersey still hung in his locker and his name plate was in place. None of Pierzynski's belongings had been removed.

If he has played his last game with the Braves, Pierzynski made it memorable. He tagged out Wilmer Flores in a collision near the plate and singled in the 10th.

Afterward, teammates splashed him with water. His young children came out on the field, cigars were passed out and the ball he hit for his single was authenticated.
