Former Marlins OF Juan Pierre announces retirement
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Juan Pierre, a key member of Miami's 2003 World Series championship, has officially announced his retirement from professional baseball on Friday, per the Miami Herald.

Pierre did not play in 2014 after registering a career low .247 batting average in 2013. The 37-year-old swiped 614 bags and slashed .295/.343/.361 line in 14 seasons between the Rockies, Marlins, Cubs, Dodgers, White Sox, and the Phillies.

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre, third baseman Placido Polanco, outfielder Matt Diaz, outfielder Austin Kearns and relief pitcher Chad Qualls have filed for free agency.

Juan Pierre says he won't retire after the season
by Jack Moore |

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre says he will not retire following the 2013 season, the Miami Herald reports.

Pierre, 35, has struggled with Miami this season, as he owns just a .244/.286/.299 line in 76 games. He says he understands opportunities may not be there due to his lack of production, but Pierre is determined to play until the opportunities are gone.

"I’m not going to cry once I’m done playing," Pierre said. "They can come and take away my jersey right now, and I’ll be fine. I'll be OK with it either way. Looking back, I would have never thought I'd play one day in the big leagues, let alone 13 years. So I'm grateful for all the time I did it."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Juan Pierre gets a start
by Chris Cwik |

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre is in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Pierre was splitting time with Justin Ruggiano, but there was some talk that Ruggiano would get some more starts after a strong performance Sunday. Pierre will get the start against Kevin Correia. Pierre is hitting .246/.290/.304 in 240 at-bats.

Marlins playing the hot hand in left
by Chris Cwik |

The Marlins will likely ride the hot hand in left, according to MLB.com.

Justin Ruggiano was a surprise start against Matt Cain Sunday. Ruggiano has been playing against left-handers, but got the start because manager Mike Redmond wanted added power in the lineup. Though Juan Pierre was playing well in June, with a 14-game hitting streak at one point, Ruggiano could see more time after Sunday's game.

by Chris Cwik |

Juan Pierre hits rare homer
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre's first-inning home run Thursday was such a rare sight, Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos could hardly believe his eyes.

"Juan Pierre hit a home run off me -- just my luck," Latos said. "I looked at him when he was running the bases and said, 'What the heck happened?'"

Pierre's home run was his first since June 23 of the 2012 season, and just his sixth extra-base hit of this season. He finished the game going 1 for 5, with one strikeout, in a 5-3 loss.

Pierre has struck out in four straight games, as his batting average is down to .239.

Juan Pierre surges to top of stolen-base list
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Marlins veteran outfielder Juan Pierre enters play Tuesday tied with Jacoby Ellsbury for the MLB lead in steals with 12

Pierre has engineered a complete turnaround on the base paths after a slow start. He was just 3 for 4 on stolen-base attempts through his first 18 games. Pierre is 9 for 9 on steal attempts in his last 12 games, which includes a stolen base in four of his last five games.

Pierre's resurgence on the base paths has coincided with an offensive surge at the plate. After batting .194 through his first 18 games, Pierre is batting .310 with a .383 on-base percentage in his last 12 games. He's also struck out one time in his last 12 games after striking out 11 times in his first 18 games.

Juan Pierre runs into history
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre has been one of the best base stealers in the league for a long time, and he hit another milestone Thursday against the Phillies.

Pierre drew a walk to open the game and then stole third base after being advanced by a single. The steal gave him 600 for his career, making him the 18th player in major-league history to hit that mark. He finished the game 0 for 3 with one run scored in a 7-2 loss.

Pierre is batting just .216, but he does have nine stolen bases and just one caught stealing in 102 at-bats.

Getting on base helping Juan Pierre's SB totals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre swiped two stolen bases in the 12th inning of Monday's game against the Mets, increasing his career total to 599.

Pierre was lucky to be around after getting hit on the right elbow by a Bobby Parnell pitch in the bottom of the 10th inning. Pierre's elbow swelled up, but he put on a compression sleeve and finished out the game.

Pierre was 2 for 6 with one run, extending his hitting streak to six games. Pierre is batting .292 (7 for 24) in that span. Pierre's offensive numbers have received a nice boost since he opened the season with a .174 average in his first 12 games. Pierre is batting .261 (12 for 46) in his last 11 games, raising his batting average above the Mendoza Line to .217. He has seven stolen bases in his last 11 games after managing one in his first 12 games.

Juan Pierre struggling atop Marlins' lineup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Marlins left fielder Juan Pierre led off for his team for the 19th time this season Friday, going 1 for 4 against the Cubs. After starting all of the team's first 15 games (14 out of the leadoff spot), Pierre has played just five of the team's last eight games.

Hitting .198 this season, Pierre could find himself moved out of the leadoff spot or taken out of the lineup regularly if he can't step it up.

Juan Pierre struggling to make contact
by Bill Passonno |

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre went 0 for 6 with three strikeouts in a 3-2 loss in 13 innings at Cincinnati Saturday. Pierre finished with three strikeouts for the second straight game -- just the third time in his 14-year career he's had multiple Ks in back-to-back outings, according to the team's radio analyst.

The light-hitting 35-year-old has a .191 batting average with 10 strikeouts through 17 games. His career high for strikeouts was 52 over 152 games with Colorado in 2002.

All signs pointing down for Juan Pierre
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

As recently as last year, Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre was a viable Fantasy option. He wasn't a must-start, but if you needed steals and a solid batting average, he was your man.

But after 17 games it looks like all 35 of Pierre's years caught up to him in the offseason. Pierre struck out three times Saturday against the Reds, giving him multiple strikeouts in consecutive games for the third time in his major-league career. Pierre's batting averaging tumbled to .191, and there are not many promising signs for his future Fantasy value.

Pierre has an abnormally low batting average on balls in play of .224 on the season, but his career-high 10.4 strikeout percentage indicates that his bat speed has diminished. Pierre has walked just once this season, giving him the worst strikeout-to-walk ratio of his career by a wide margin. He has just three stolen bases because he has barely been on the bases. 

Pierre has never been much for walking, so the only way he can sustain any Fantasy value is by posting a high batting average. At this point, it does not look good for Fantasy owners. Don't be hesitant to drop him.

Marlins make change atop lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

The Marlins made a change atop their lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals. Chris Coghlan moved into the leadoff spot, which was the first time in 14 games this season someone other than Juan Pierre hit leadoff.

Pierre remained in the starting lineup, but he hit second.

No plans to sit Juan Pierre vs. lefties
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre has struggled to hit left-handed pitchers over the last few years, but the team does not currently plan on placing him in a platoon to protect the veteran.

Pierre has appeared in all 10 games for the Marlins as of Friday, including six games against lefty starters, and he is batting just 2 for 14 against them so far. Last season, Pierre batted just .190 against lefties, and the Phillies made sure to limit him to just 67 at bats; the Marlins might not have that luxury given the current makeup of the team.

“That’s still something we’re talking about,” manager Mike Redmond told the Sun Sentinel. “We’ll just have to wait and see. JP, he’s a big part of our lineup."

The Marlins' only other option at left field to give Pierre a break against lefties is Chris Coghlan, who bats from the same side of the plate and has similar platoon splits. Pierre is batting just .200 overall in 35 at bats on the season.

Pierre is batting .222 (6 for 27) with no stolen bases.
