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. …
No, he couldn’t give away Holmberg. Holmberg was drafted in June .
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.
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.
