What's Juan Pierre's Status?

Postby Doughhead » Tue Mar 11, 2008 8:14 am

Does Pierre have a starting OF position and the leadoff spot wrapped up, or is he still battling for those jobs in ST?

Per Yahoo!, he is starting for the dodgers at LF. Personally I think he is getting up their in age and the SBs should be less and less each season for the rest of his career.

He's hitting not so great, but spring training doesn't mean all that much sometimes for vets. He may be working on his walks, trying to take pitches or something. He can always slap hit it to the shortstop and stand a decent chance of getting on, so why work on that in spring training? One thing for sure, Torre likes to run, and Pierre is a monster on the bases, so if he gets on, you can bet he's running.

Pierre's Days With Dodgers May Be Numbered

The Orange County Register speculates this morning that Juan Pierre may be on the verge of losing his job after only one season with the Dodgers, which may force a trade. If true, the Dodgers will have received only one year of service for their $44MM investment.

Tony Jackson notes that with center field belonging to Andruw Jones, that leaves two spots for Pierre, Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp. Ethier and Kemp have shown this spring that they may be ready for everyday jobs. Jackson also suggests that Pierre is not an ideal candidate for the bench even if the remaining 4 years and $36.5MM on his contract are discounted.

It was previously mentioned that Pierre may be willing to waive his no-trade clause, which limits the Dodgers to five teams. However the A's, one rumored destination, are not interested. If Pierre is traded, the Dodgers will most likely have to swallow a good portion of the remaining contract. Would the Mets get involved if talks with the Tigers and Jay fall through? Pierre might only cost them $24MM for the next four years and middling prospect.
