Tigers Also Interested In Juan Pierre?

In addition to reportedly being interested in bringing back Johnny Damon, the Tigers might also be considering Juan Pierre, assuming re-signing Damon doesn't work out [via CSNChicago]:

Tigers considering Johnny Damon & Juan Pierre with thinking of adding table setters and letting Boesch and Young make up for VMarts RBI's

Pierre was abysmal on defense last year for the White Sox (-9.2 UZR). He is supposed to be an asset on the base paths, but he has led the league in caught stealing two years in a row. He hasn't seen an OPS north of .700 in three years and he will be 35 in August. He's a soft-hitting poor man's version of Damon (who could actually cost more) in an oversized uniform.
