Vizquel Claimed Off Waivers, Pulled Back

On August 16th, ESPN.com's Jayson Stark mentioned that Omar Vizquel, among many others, had cleared waivers.  Stark's colleague Buster Olney heard differently, however.  According to Olney, Vizquel was indeed claimed but no deal was reached and he was withdrawn.  Olney believes the Tigers may have made the claim, or perhaps the Indians as a block.

Vizquel still doesn't strike out much, but his batting average dipped to .245 this year.  He could've helped a contender though.  I'm not sure whether the Elias Bureau will rate him a Type A or B free agent after this year, as he was solid in 2006.

Here's a look at the updated Players Who Have Cleared Waivers post; Jack Wilson is out there for whoever missed out on Vizquel.
