Since Vlad's post on the front page created a lively discussion on the merits of Jensen Lewis and whether the Pirates should claim him if he was actually on waivers, I thought I would update the current situation.
Lewis was, in fact, put on waivers and cleared them today. As a result he was outrighted to AAA Columbus. Paul Hoynes of the Plain-Dealer has the story here.
I'm a little surprised Lewis made it through waivers, but velocity may be telling the scouts something.
