Description: Miami left fielder Juan Pierre hasn't had much success in his career against Giants starter Matt Cain.
Insight: Pierre is hitting .160 against the All-Star righthander. Once again, the veteran outfielder has been an excellent source of speed, swiping 18 stolen bases in 62 games this season. Unfortunately, he's only hitting .246 with eight RBI in 240 at bats.

Insight: Pierre is only batting .217 with a .504 OPS this season, though he does have 10 steals in 11 chances. He should be avoided Sunday.
4/20/2013 7:35:00 PM
Description: Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre was 0-for-6 with three strikeouts Saturday versus Cincinnati.
Insight: Pierre hit .307 and stole 37 bases last year, but he is 13-for-68 (.191) with one walk and 10 strikeouts this year. Pierre has no power at all, so if he isn't hitting for average and getting on base to steal and score runs, he has no fantasy value.
4/14/2013 7:10:00 PM
Description: Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre went 0-for-4 Sunday and is 8-for-46 (.174) with zero extra-base hits, zero RBIs and four runs in 12 games this season.

8/26/2012 11:50:00 AM
Description: You probably won't want Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre in your lineup Sunday against the Nationals. He's hitting a dreadful .182 in 11 lifetime at bats against Washington starter Jordan Zimmerman.
Insight: Pierre is 0-for-15 over his last five games. He could be in for another hitless outing Sunday against Zimmerman (9-7, 2.54 ERA).

8/19/2012 10:20:00 AM
Description: Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre has not had a good August but a meeting with Brewers starter Randy Wolf Sunday may wake his bat up.
Insight: Pierre is batting .258 this month after hitting .293 or higher in the season's first four months, but he does have a .389 (14-for-36) career average against Wolf so get him in the lineup.
8/3/2012 6:35:00 PM
Description: According to the Phillies' official website, manager Charlie Manuel has told outfielder Juan Pierre that his playing time will be reduced now that Domonic Brown and Nate Schierholtz are on the team.
Insight: Pierre (.312, 1 HR, 19 RBI) is not in the lineup Friday night against Arizona. Though it doesn't look like he'll be an everyday player going forward, Pierre might still be worth keeping on your roster because of his dominance in the steals category (six thefts in his last six games).
8/1/2012 6:12:00 PM
Description: The Phillies traded almost their entire outfield Tuesday, yet somehow left fielder Juan Pierre isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.

7/31/2012 10:11:00 PM
Description: With Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence traded to the NL West, Juan Pierre figures to see plenty of playing time in the outfield for the Phillies.
Insight: Pierre went 3-for-5 to raise his average to .312 and also stole two bags Tuesday. He's worth an add in deeper mixed leagues.
7/28/2012 6:44:00 PM
Description: Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre is receiving the night off Saturday against the Braves.
Insight: Pierre, who is tied with center fielder Shane Victorino for the team-lead in RBIs (23), is hitting .286 in 28 post All-Star break at bats.

7/15/2012 2:39:00 PM
Description: Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre will be on the bench Sunday when Philadelphia plays its series finale against the Rockies.
Insight: Pierre is coming off a 3-3 performance in Saturday's game. He remains a solid play for fantasy owners in need of an outfielder with good speed (21 stolen bases) and a high batting average (.316).
7/13/2012 8:01:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia outfielder Juan Pierre will get the night off Friday when the Phillies take on the Rockies.
Insight: Pierre is one of several Philadelphia players that could be dealt before the July 31 trade deadline. The 13-year veteran won't give fantasy owners much in the way of home runs (one so far this season) and RBIs (18) but Pierre has always been pretty swift on the basepaths (574 career steals) and this season he's batting .307 in 241 at bats.
6/23/2012 8:53:00 PM
Description: Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre went 2-for-3 with his first homer of the season and two steals Saturday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Pierre connects for one or two round-trippers per season, but his game is speed. The outfielder has 16 steals to go along with a .328 average in 61 games this year, making him a solid add in NL-only leagues and even deeper mixed formats.
5/24/2012 3:12:00 PM
Description: Juan Pierre can't be thrilled about facing Jake Westbrook on Thursday. He's 1-16 in his career against the Cardinals righthander.
Insight: Pierre is 1-19 in his last six games and has seen his average drop from .343 to .299 during that span.
5/2/2012 3:45:00 PM
Description: Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta. No injury, just rest.
Insight: Pierre is doing what he does best ... and worst. He's batting .313 with three steals, but has an ugly .695 OPS. If you can live with the lack of power, he's a good source for speed.
4/18/2012 2:22:00 PM
Description: With the Phillies struggling to put runs on the board, outfielder Juan Pierre could see a lot more playing time.
Insight: Pierre is batting .346 this season and has three stolen bases in four tries. With John Mayberry hitting below .220, it would seem like a no-brainer for manager Charlie Manuel to get Pierre in the lineup. As always with Pierre, you are giving up pop (career OPS .708) for speed (557 SB).
