    Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright has elbow procedure
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (4:42 pm ET) Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright had a procedure to trim cartilage in his right elbow, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

    Wainwright had been dealing with elbow issues throughout the team's playoff run, though did his best to downplay a possible injury. The early reports were that Wainwright's elbow checked out fine after the season, but things changed following a second opinion. The surgery will not impact Wainwright in 2015. He's expected to be able to start throwing again in six weeks. 


    Phillies' Cole Hamels updating his no-trade list
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (4:34 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels is updating his no-trade list just in case, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

    There's a chance Hamels will hit the trade market this offseason. While the Phillies would love to keep him, Hamels is one of the few valuable pieces the club can offer in a deal. The 30-year-old is still owed $96 million over four seasons. Hamels currently has nine clubs on his no-trade list, but he is allowed to update them. He has until Nov. 1 to give the Phillies his official list. The Red Sox and Cubs have shown interest in Hamels the past few months. 


    Tigers DH Victor Martinez to seek four-year deal
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (4:27 pm ET) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will look for a four-year deal on the market, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

    Martinez, 35, is coming off a monster year in which he hit .335/.409/.565 over 561 at-bats. He also added 32 home runs. Detroit will extend a qualifying offer to Martinez, though it's expected that he'll decline and test his luck on the market. Martinez signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Tigers in 2010.
