Sox trade for Juan Pierre

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ December 15, 2009 10:15 am


The White Sox acquired Juan Pierre from the Dodgers for two minor league pitchers, according to Yahoo’s Tim Brown. The Dodgers will take on roughly half of Pierre’s salary. The outfielder has $18.5MM remaining on his deal ($10MM next year and $8.5MM in 2011), so the Dodgers are taking on about $9MM. …

Stats: B-R.

I hope Kenny didn’t give away David Holmberg or Santos Rodriguez (there is no way he gave away Daniel Hudson).

No, he couldn’t give away Holmberg. Holmberg was drafted in June [2009].

UPDATE: MLBTR now says the Sox will pay Pierre $3 million in 2010 and $5 million in 2011 meaning the Dodgers will pick up the remaining $10.5 million. Also, the two minor league pitchers will be Players To Be Named Later. Hmmm, $10.5 million is a lot. I wonder who the PTBNLs are.

UPDATE: Jon Paul Morosi hears the 2 PTBNLs are John Ely and Jon Link. Oh, man. After reading this, I’ll feel so bad if it’ll  be Ely.

Jayson Stark says the Dodgers will select 2 pitchers from a list. The 2 pitchers will be able to reach the majors in 2010 says Stark.
