Marlins sign Juan Pierre to one-year contract


The Miami Marlins today announced the signing of outfielder Juan Pierre to a one-year contract. The announcement was made by Marlins President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest.

Pierre, 35, batted .307 (121x394) in 130 games for Philadelphia last season, with 37 stolen bases. He played in every regular-season game for the Marlins from 2003-05, and had a crucial role in the Club’s 2003 World Series championship. He batted .305 (204x668) that season, and set a franchise record with 65 stolen bases. Pierre continued his success in the postseason, batting .301 (22x73) with 12 runs scored, six extra-base hits, seven RBI and three steals over the 17-game playoff run.

Pierre is the active ML leader in career stolen bases, with 591, which also ranks 19th all-time. He stole 167 bases in his three seasons with the Marlins, which ranks third in the Club record book, and is also among the Franchise leaders in hits and on-base percentage.
