Juan Pierre makes the Phillies roster

17 Comments

He only got a minor league contract with a spring training invite, but Juan Pierre impressed the Phillies with a decent spring and, presumably, his usual hard work (he gets raves for that).  He’ll make $800K and will be a backup outfielder and a bench bat.

Pierre hit just .279/.329/.327 last year, and it wasn’t like he cratered. He can still play some defense however, so he has his uses.
