Rafael Furcal needs more medical tests

VIERA, Fla. (AP) — Rafael Furcal had hoped to make his spring training debut Sunday. Instead, the 35-year-old shortstop was told to stop baseball activities.

Trying to come back from a torn ligament in his right elbow, the three-time All-Star has been told he must have additional medical tests.

With Furcal out indefinitely, Pete Kozma and Ronny Cedeno are the likely candidates to take over at shortstop unless there is a trade.
