Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cardinals | Rafael Furcal fine following TJS

St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow), as expected, underwent surgery Wednesday, March 13, to repair his ulnar collateral ligament and have a bone spur taken care of. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews. "We heard everything went as well as could be expected," said manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Furcal's contract with St. Louis is up after this season, and he'll be 36 entering the 2014 campaign, so he won't be the hottest free-agent commodity. He may struggle to regain fantasy value, even in NL-only leagues. He could consider retirement, but this is purely speculation.
