Rafael Furcal Rumors: Monday

ESPN's Jayson Stark has the latest on free agent shortstop Rafael Furcal.  Furcal's agent Paul Kinzer doesn't see his client signing before the winter meetings, which kick off next week.

Four teams are in on Furcal: the Giants, A's, Braves, and a mystery team.  Stark talked to execs who guessed the Red Sox or Orioles could be the fourth team.  That team apparently has to make a trade to open up their shortstop position.  In a recent poll of over 6,000 MLBTR readers, the A's won the vote as the team most likely to sign Furcal.

The Braves' interest will pick up if they trade shortstop Yunel Escobar first.  We knew about the Padres; Stark says the Cardinals and Royals also expressed interest in Escobar.
