Juan Pierre a favorite for a roster spot on Phillies

Hyped by on February 27, 2012 Website:

We knew that the one thing that would drastically change in 2012 for the Philadelphia Phillies was the bench. The addition of guys like Jim Thome and Ty Wigginton figured to give Charlie Manuel a few bats to chose from off the bench more threatening to opposing pitchers than guys like Wilson Valdez and Michael Martinez.

In January the Phillies signed veteran outfielder Juan Pierre to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. According to a story by Bob Brookover of The Philadelphia Inquirer News yesterday, Pierre seems to be taking advantage of the opportunity.
