Juan Pierre Will Pursue Trade

Posted on: March 5, 2009 1:56 pm
 

According to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick:

The Dodgers have given Juan Pierre's agent permission to explore potential trade partners for the outfielder who again lost his starting job with the re-signing of left fielder Manny Ramirez.

Pierre says his agent will "talk to teams and try to find a situation that can work out for everybody."

The whole idea seems weird to me.  Why would Pierre's agent be making these calls instead of Ned Colletti?  Perhaps the idea is for Pierre's agent to identify a few teams that wouldn't mind having the outfielder under certain circumstances, to get the ball rolling.  Pierre's owed a hefty $28.5MM over the next three seasons, but he is willing to defer payment.

Juan Pierre Will Pursue Trade

I don't think the pirates or any team should pursue him because his lousy batting average and 1 homerun, all he has is speed.
