10:27 AM ET 08.17 | Shortstop Jack Wilson has cleared waivers, a bold sign that the Pirates' trade talks with Detroit are not dormant. All players on a 40-man roster must clear waivers to be dealt after the July 31 deadline. Another sign: The Pirates have had a scout in Cleveland watching the Tigers-Indians series, including the Wednesday game when Jair Jurrjens -- a prospect mentioned in initial talks -- made a fine major-league debut by limiting Cleveland to four runs in seven innings.
