Furcal to gets second opinion on elbow

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal is getting a second
opinion on his ailing elbow.

General manager John Mozeliak said Furcal would be examined
Wednesday by Dr. James Andrews.

The 35-year-old Furcal is out indefinitely after reinjuring the
elbow he hurt late last season. Furcal and the team elected to try
rehab rather than reconstructive surgery in the offseason.

The Cardinals also have Pete Kozma, who stepped in last fall as
a rookie, and offseason pickup Ronny Cedeno at shortstop.
