Tonight at 11:59 p.m. is the waiver trade deadline.   Players who are acquired before September 1 hits are eligible for postseason rosters.   This is the real last chance to add a player for one final run.  Players may only be traded if they have cleared waivers first.   One Phillie has.

Juan Pierre has cleared waivers, according to Fox Sports' Jon Morosi, and may be on the move tonight.  Morosi's source tell him he could be traded.

The Phillies, who are expected to get lefthanded outfield Nate Schierholtz back from the disabled list tomorrow, could spare Pierre in a trade.   Pierre would be a low-cost, speedy extra help for a contending team. 

The Cincinnati Reds were rumored to be interested in the past.  Pierre is currently in a 3 for 22 slump (.136).
