ESPN's Jayson Stark is reporting that the Pirates are poised to trade both second baseman Freddy Sanchez and shortstop Jack Wilson before the deadline, according to reports from other clubs in the last 24 hours. Reports say Sanchez is likely to go to the Giants. Supposedly, the Red Sox were ready to make a deal for Wilson but backed off while they assess which prospects they may need for other deals they're trying to make.
Both players were offered contract extensions a few weeks ago but nothing came of those negotiations.
