Jack Wilson Will Waive No-Trade Clause

Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson has a six-team limited no-trade clause, but he recently let the team know that he'll waive it for any deal.  Apparently he just wants out of Pittsburgh. Dejan Kovacevic isn't sure if the team has placed him on waivers yet.  But I'm sure they will and he should get through unclaimed.  As far as I've read, almost every player in baseball is put on waivers in August just to mask those that the team is actually trying to trade.  There's no risk to this because you can pull a player back if he's claimed.

Kovacevic says talks with the Tigers about Wilson are still ongoing.  Bucco Blog had heard that Jair Jurrjens and Brent Clevlen were involved also.
