The St. Louis Cardinals have shortstop Rafael Furcal on a
program as he continues to recover from the elbow injury he suffered in late August. However, the Cardinals don’t anticipate the veteran having any
limitations as a result of the elbow injury, according to Jenifer Langosch of
"He feels like he's pretty much on program," manager Mike Matheny said. "You have to realize what you had last year. We went pretty slow with him and he came out of the box carrying us. We understand that we can put him on a program and we'll be good as long as things point in a healthy direction."
