PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels is not going to be traded anywhere this month.

The Cubs reportedly claimed Hamels on revocable waivers this week, but the 48-hour window to make a trade has passed with the Phillies pulling back Hamels from waivers.

It would have taken a monster package of prospects from the Cubs to acquire Hamels.

If the Phillies plan to trade Hamels, they can try again in the offseason when they can engage every team.
