Pierre Traded to White Sox for Two Prospects
Of the $18.5 million left on Pierre's contract, the White Sox will pay $3 million in 2010 and $5 million in 2011. Pierre will be Chicago's leadoff hitter.
Pierre played in 145 games for the Dodgers in 2009, batting .308 with 31 RBIs and 30 stolen bases.
"Juan always put the Dodgers first, even when it wasn't in his personal best interest," said Dodgers GM Ned Colletti. "In this day, that is a rare attribute. When he and I spoke at the end of the season, we agreed that if an opportunity presented itself in which his chance to play would be enhanced, we would pursue it and that's what we've done. He deserved the chance to play more."
For his 10-year career, the 32-year-old left-handed hitter sports a career .301 batting average with a .348 on-base percentage while averaging 46 stolen bases per season. During his three seasons with Los Angeles, Pierre batted .294 with a .339 on-base percentage and 134 stolen bases in 173 attempts.
