Cardinals | Rafael Furcal won’t be game-ready by the weekend.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) will not be game-ready by the weekend, and will likely be eased back into game action. "We've still got a few days to figure that out," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He still hasn't let it go yet. It's going to be hard to put him out there in a situation where a backhand deep in the hole -- he's not ready for that. It probably will take a little time but we'll wait and see what we have these last few days." Matheny said Furcal is absolutely expected to be ready for opening day.
