Furcal update?

Postby sfgfan4life » Sat Apr 17, 2004 1:19 am

Sorry if this has been discussed, but I heard that he was supposed to be in the lineup last wendsday, but wasn't, and I haven't heard anything sinse. Does anyone have an update?

Furcal didn't play for the sixth consecutive game, nursing a strained lower back. He took some grounders and batting practice Friday night.
Fantasy Source spin: Unfortunately, he's not expected back until maybe early next week. And the word "maybe" is disconcerting, especially since how this has dragged on.
Hmmm. :-?

Rotoworld this morning.

Rafael Furcal - SS, ATL Apr 17 0:41 AM
Furcal took infield and batting practice before Friday's game and said that he might return to the lineup on Saturday. "He's made real good progress," Braves manager Bobby Cox told the team's official web site. "We might be able to get him in there tonight. We'll see."
RotoWire.com Recommends: This is a dramatic turnaround as on Thursday he was having pain in his back and looked headed for the DL. His status is still tenuous, so monitor him closely this weekend.
Eternal vigilance is the price of integrity.
