    Does anyone know verifiably why Juan Pierre didn't sign with the Mariners in 1995 and '96?

    No. He didn't make his MLB debut until 2000. At that time he was playing college ball at USA (University of South Alabama).

      Here is what it says on WikiPedia:

      Pierre began his professional career with the Portland Rockies of the Northwest League after being selected by Colorado in the 13th round of the 1998 MLB draft. He won the league batting and stolen base titles in his first professional season with 38 and was a fan favorite even at that level. Pierre moved on to the Asheville Tourists the following year, again batting well over .300 and began 2000 with the Carolina Mudcats before finishing the year in Colorado.
