Less than a week after the Marlins pulled off a 12-player trade with the Toronto Blue Jays a deal still being finalized Miami has reportedly signed a familiar face.
According to several sources, the Marlins on Saturday signed outfielder Juan Pierre, who played three seasons with the franchise from 2003-05, hitting .305 with 65 stolen bases in 2003, helping the team win the World Series.
The signing comes nearly 10 years to the day the Marlins first aquired him in a six-player trade with Colorado on Nov. 16, 2002.
After being traded from the Marlins to the Cubs in 2006, Pierre, 35, has played for the Dodgers, White Sox and, most recently, the Phillies in 2012, hitting .307 with 37 stolen bases in 130 games
Pierre has a career .297 batting average with 591 stolen bases and 2,141 hits.
