It seems silly to try and trade him now while his value is so low. Pierre was a minor iron man for playing every inning of every game last season. He's more durable than you might think. He might have a slow first couple of weeks--maybe even a slow April. But my advice would be to sit tight and be patient. If you want to trade him, that's fine. But don't do it when his value is at an all-time low. That's pretty standard advice. Savvy managers take advantage of people who are quick to hit the panic button. Have a back-up plan for opening day and be patient. I think this will be a non-factor by May.

I agree. I would see what Pierre could do for you. He will be good to your team ;-D

I have Pierre on my team also whom dropped to the SIXTH round in my 8 person league. Everything that I have heard is telling me to keep him, maybe get another CF for the beginning part of the year until he is healthy again. But when he's healthy, hes a top 3 base stealer behind posednik and crawford and a top 20-30 player overall. This guy is worth keeping.

A calf injury will go away, it's not a hammy or anything, and it should not be any real problem after the first week of the season, if that.

Hold on to him at this point by all means. He played in a minor league game yesterday, running at full speed on the bases and in the field reporting nothing wrong. If you still feel uneasy come the end of the month, let him build some stats and then pull the trigger.
