Wilson to be dealt at the GM Meetings?
The Tigers, Dodgers and four others teams have made inquires about Pirates short stop Jack Wilson. One source believes Wilson will be dealt at the GM meetings (Dec 8th – Dec11th) but I’m kind of skeptical despite the Pirates aggressively shopping Wilson. Pittsburgh needs a MLB ready shortstop coming the other way and the Pirates are still looking for a 3-1 swap which has turned some teams away. The Tigers, Blue Jays and Dodgers have shown the most interest. Talks with those teams and others will heat up in the next couple weeks.

Indians, Mets and Tigers have inquired about John Grabow.
Walker future second baseman?: The Pirates have internally discussed moving Neil Walker to second base for the upcoming season.
There has been trade discussions between the Pirates and Marlins but there has been no confirmation that those talks have centered around Jeremy Hermida.
Pitchers Paul Byrd and Odalis Perez are seeking three deals to even consider the Pirates according to a source. Both players are on the Pirates radar.
Atlanta and the Yankees have shown interest in Ian Snell but the Pirates can’t afford to move him at this time
