[SOLVED] Can Pacman display existing as well as upgradable versions

Running pacman -Syu lists available updates for packages and the update version.

Is it possible for it to also display the existing version of each package?

For example, in debian, you get the following:

The following packages will be upgraded:
   aspell (0.60.8-3 => 0.60.8-4)
   bsdextrautils (2.37.2-1 => 2.37.2-3)
   bsdutils (1:2.37.2-1 => 1:2.37.2-3)
   debianutils (4.11.2 => 5.5-1)
