A.J. Pierzynski Looking Forward To Facing Rangers Ace Yu Darvish (Video)

The Boston Red Sox will begin a three-game series with the Texas Rangers on Friday night, and their first test is a difficult one against star pitcher Yu Darvish.

The Rangers ace uses four pitches effectively, including a four-seam fastball that often reaches 95 mph. Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who was Darvish’s teammate in Texas last season, knows exactly what Boston is up against Friday.

Check out the video above to watch Pierzynski give a scouting report on Darvish.
