So, the guy enjoyed a very good part of a season last year and completely disappeared earlier this year before being sent down to work. And he came bad pretty strong to finish the year. His minor league record suggestion he should do better than he has done this year and obviously he can steal bases. What kind of projections do you have for him next year?

He'll steal when he gets on, but I wouldn't count on him hitting much over .250....not until I see it for a full year.

Tough to say what he'll do over a full year.

All I know is that I heard that if Pierre walks then the Cubs will be interested.

Good steals, low batting average. He will probably be worth a late round flier just for some extra speed, but I imagine his average will hold you down a bit if you were to have to start him fulltime.

I think his average will be higher than expected next year. He averaged .301/.372/.420 in 6 minor league seasons and did hit .341 in 126 ABs at the end of 2005. I'm not expecting .300, but i think .270 or .275 isn't too unreasonable.

Agree with Half Massed. I think his average will be in the .270 range with 20+ SB potential (if Tracy lets him run). Nice late round flyer for SB.

Well, he'll be a man without a position once McClutchen gets the call up. So I think he'll be packaged in a deal with 1 or 2 more players, probably 1 young SP, for a power hitting lefty sometime soon.

Well he was supposedly a man without a position when McClouth got "called up", and he still ended the season with great steals and average, even with limited playing time.
