MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick talked to Juan Pierre‘s agent Mark Pieper, who said Pierre would prefer a trade to a team where he can play more often. He’s willing to waive his no-trade clause. Pierre is singing the same tune as Andruw Jones, but both players have negative trade value.
Pierre’s biggest asset is staying healthy; that’s been true for many years. He doesn’t help much on offense or defense. His stolen bases don’t really add value. Pierre has three years and $28.5MM left on his deal. Perhaps he can be swapped for another bad contract. Any suggestions?
