2012 MLB Free Agency: OF Juan Pierre Signs Minor League Contract With Philadelphia Phillies

Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reported Friday morning that the Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a minor league deal with outfielder Juan Pierre.

The 34-year-old outfielder joins Philly after spending the previous two seasons with the Chicago White Sox. With the Sox, Pierre hit a .277/.335/.322 slash -- his worst slash with any one team -- while stealing an impressive 95 bases. Pierre led the league in 2010 with 68 steals, and led the league in both 2010 and 2011 with 18 and 17 caught stealing.

According to the MLB Trade Rumors, Pierre will likely start the season with fellow outfield veterans John Mayberry and Laynce Nix, and Phillies propsect Domonic Brown.
