Many players would not want to play for the Miami Marlins after their recent fire sale. Juan Pierre
But the team has reached a contract with free agent outfielder Juan Pierre. He signed a one-year, $1.6 million deal.

With an every day role, he could get 40 or more steals while providing little power.

Koehler has organized a pair of baseball clinics to take place in December...
