Juan Pierre has officially announced his retirement from baseball.
Pierre, 37, didn't play last season but only now has officially decided to hang up his cleats. It was quite a career for the speedster, as Pierre sported a .295/.343/.361 batting line over his 14 seasons while stealing 614 bases. He never made an All-Star team, but Pierre finished in the top-20 in National League MVP voting twice and won a World Series ring with the Marlins in 2003. Fri, Feb 27, 2015 12:48:00 PM

Juan Pierre said he won't retire when his contract expires after this season.

To his credit, Pierre realizes that the decision may be out of his hands. Pierre, who will turn 36 in a few weeks, is hitting a putrid .244/.286/.299 and has started only three games since the beginning of July. "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."

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Marlins are "gauging the interest" in Juan Pierre and Placido Polanco.

They're unlikely to find a suitor for either struggling veteran. Pierre, 35, is batting just .242/.284/.297 this season. Polanco, 37, is hitting .259/.315/.301.

Juan Pierre went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, but the Phillies outlasted the Marlins on Tuesday.

Pierre actually led off the inning with a walk and was sacrificed to second before stealing third and scoring on a wild pitch. The lead was short-lived, however, as a John Mayberry home run tied the game again in the bottom of the frame. Still, his two stolen bases on the night gives him 16 through 48 games this year.

Juan Pierre hit his annual homer Thursday against the Reds, delivering a leadoff shot off Mat Latos in the first.

Pierre has 18 homers in 14 big-league seasons, never hitting more than three in a year. Not a one of them has come against a left-handed pitcher.

Juan Pierre swiped his 600th career base Thursday against the Phillies.

Pierre, who is 9-for-10 stealing bases this year, is the 18th player in major league history to reach 600 steals. He's due to pass George Davis (619), Otis Nixon (620) and Kenny Lofton (622) and move into 15th place on the all-time list later this year. He has almost 150 steals on Ichiro Suzuki (454) for first place on the active list.

Juan Pierre went 2-for-6 with two steals against the Mets in Monday's 15-inning game.

Pierre was in a lot of pain after getting hit on the elbow by a Bobby Parnell pitch in the 10th, but he stayed in afterwards. If not for Giancarlo Stanton's injury two batters later, perhaps Pierre would have come out after running. As it was, the Marlins had little choice but to leave him in. If Pierre isn't in Tuesday's lineup, you'll know why.

Juan Pierre stole two bases Tuesday in the Marlins' defeat of the Nationals.

Pierre went 3-for-4 at the plate with two runs scored. He got off to a slow start this year but should be a solid source of stolen bases the rest of the way.

Juan Pierre went 0-for-4 at the plate Sunday against the Phillies, dropping his batting average to .174.

He also has just one stolen base over his first 12 contests, so he's providing nothing for fantasy owners right now. The Marlins don't have many options, though, so Pierre probably isn't in danger of losing the left field job anytime soon.

Marlins manager Mike Redmond indicated on Saturday that he'll likely use Juan Pierre, Placido Polanco and Giancarlo Stanton as the top three hitters in his lineup this season.

It's not a surprising development, as the Marlins have very few proven options for top of the order hitters. It's a nice boost to Pierre's potential fantasy value at the very least, as his runs and stolen base totals should be very strong from the top of the lineup, despite being a non-factor in the power categories. Unfortunately for Stanton, neither Pierre nor Polanco are the best tablesetters, so his RBI opportunities could be affected.

Marlins signed OF Juan Pierre to a one-year, $1.6 million contract.

On the surface, it seems like a solid deal for both parties. The Marlins get an inexpensive veteran who should provide a strong presence at the top of the lineup, while Pierre receives the opportunity to secure everyday at-bats. The 35-year-old outfielder offers little in the power department, but Pierre is a strong three-category contributor in fantasy leagues and should have no difficulty accumulating 40 or more steals in 2013.

According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, the Marlins have signed free agent outfielder Juan Pierre.

Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The 35-year-old outfielder hit .307/.351/.371 with 37 stolen bases for the Phillies in 2012. Pierre previously played with the Marlins from 2003-2005, and will presumably see regular starts in left field for Miami in 2013.

Danny Knobler of reports that the Orioles are interested in a trade for Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre.

Pierre wouldn't be eligible for the postseason roster, but he could help soften the blow of losing Nick Markakis. As of now, the Phillies aren't motivated to move him, possibly because they are playing better recently and still have an outside chance at the playoffs. Orioles manager Buck Showalter will likely mix and match with Lew Ford, Nate McLouth, Chris Davis and Xavier Avery in the corner outfield spots for now.

Juan Pierre had three hits and a pair of steals, leading the Phillies to a 3-2 victory over the Rockies on Friday.

Pierre finished the night 3-for-4 with a run scored. Even at 34-years-old, Pierre has still provided a big lift to the Phillies offense, hitting .305 with 49 runs scored and 34 swipes in 348 at-bats.

Jon Morosi of reports that Juan Pierre has cleared revocable waivers.

Morosi thinks a deal involving Pierre could be completed sometime today, though he didn't list potentially interested teams. The Reds had interest in him before the deadline, but it's doubtful they'd still want him following the rise of Ryan Ludwick.
