The Dodgers placed shortstop Rafael Furcal on the DL today, and MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick says they’re trying to acquire an emergency replacement. Furcal will be eligible to return on May 21st. He’s been perhaps the game’s best hitting shortstop to date.
Perhaps the Rays’ Andy Cannizaro would make sense? The Dodgers have been using Chin-lung Hu at short; despite his lack of offense it may be best to just stick with him.
