32-year old lefty swinging LF Juan Pierre was brought in by the White Sox to provide speed and a .300+ bat at the top of the lineup. Well, he has provided speed so far this season as he is leading the majors in steals with 61. He has played in 154 games for the Pale Hose so far this year and he is 170 of 627 (.271 avg, .651 OPS) with 88 runs scored, 1 homer and 44 RBIs. The White Sox felt they had enough power to cover for Pierre’s bat as long as he got on base a lot. Hopefully next season Pierre will hit over .300 with 100+ runs scored.
