This is the latest report I have heard - "May 20 Dodgers.MLB.com's John Klima reports Los Angeles Dodgers SS Rafael Furcal (back) could return Wednesday, May 21."

I would keep him out for a day personally. I have to believe he won't do much damage his first day back (though I wish I had started ARod tonight !+) )...

I keep hearing Friday is a better bet, especially since Thursday is an off day.

From the LA Times...

Rafael Furcal reported feeling no pain in his lower back Tuesday, but Dodgers trainer Stan Conte said the shortstop would "have to do a pretty good sell job" to be moved to the active roster today, the first day he is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Manager Joe Torre was on the same page as Conte, saying, "I certainly don't want to take a chance of doing the wrong thing. I'd rather bite the bullet here for an extra couple days."

Because Furcal didn't start working out on the field until Monday, Conte said there was uncertainty about how his back would hold up to sustained activity. Conte said he was also worried that because Furcal hasn't played in two-plus weeks, he could pull a hamstring or a calf muscle.

Torre said there was a chance Furcal could be sent on a minor league rehabilitation assignment.

Said Furcal with a shrug: "We'll see what they decide."

Im believing it will be Friday..why chance/rush it

as a Furcal and Escobar owner in one deep league with no other SS id like to see Furcal play but ill take a day or two of blanks vs the scum on that particular wire

Today would be a nice bonus!

The "uncertaintly to how his back will hold up to sustained activity" part makes me leery. This sounds like one of those things that has the potential to linger.

^.... Nope.. no Furcal in the lineup tonight...same lineup as the last couple nights...

i guess Furcal is not ready to be activated yet... who knows.. the weather is kinda cool in LA with a chance of rain, so maybe that could have played a factor in it?

all the reports seemed to indicate that Friday was the day he would be activated but i guess not....

not sure if it was a "small set back"... I'm starting to worry that this thing is going to be drawn out for another week or so... and Barmes just got hurt... Guzman here I come :~(
