ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers and American League All-Star manager Ron Washington said the one player that he was disappointed about the most that he couldn't get on the All-Star roster was A.J. Pierznyski of the Chicago White Sox.

Pierzynski is hitting .283 with 14 homers and 45 RBIs. He leads all AL catchers in home runs and is second in RBIs. But Baltimore's Matt Wieters was selected by the players and Washington needed to get a Minnesota Twin on the roster and chose Joe Mauer.

"I feel bad for Pierzynski," Washington said. "The guy's having an outstanding year. He's been working with a very good pitching staff over there with those Chicago White Sox for many years. I consider him a winning player because he beats you any kind of way he can. He beats you mentally, he beats you physically. So I feel really bad for Pierzynski."
