Dodgers trade Juan Pierre to the Chicago White Sox

Juan_240 The Dodgers have traded outfielder Juan Pierre to the Chicago White Sox for two players to be named, according to major league sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been announced.

The Dodgers will pay a portion of the $18.5 million remaining on the final two years of Pierre's contract.

Pierre signed a five-year, $44-million contract with the Dodgers before the 2007 season but was relegated to a bench role only a year later.

The 32-year-old leadoff hitter became a fan favorite this season when he filled in for Manny Ramirez during Ramirez's 50-game suspension for violating baseball's drug policy.
