Marlins signed OF Juan Pierre to a one-year, $1.6 million contract.

On the surface, it seems like a solid deal for both parties. The Marlins get an inexpensive veteran who should provide a strong presence at the top of the lineup, while Pierre receives the opportunity to secure everyday at-bats. The 35-year-old outfielder offers little in the power department, but Pierre is a strong three-category contributor in fantasy leagues and should have no difficulty accumulating 40 or more steals in 2013.
