St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) expects to have the bone spur in his elbow removed at the same time he undergoes Tommy John surgery. Furcal thinks he'll have the operation at some point next week. St. Louis will go with either SSs Pete Kozma or Ronny Cedeno at shortstop with Furcal out for the season. "The way we look at it right now it is certainly going to be a competition between Kozma and Cedeno but there's no doubt that given what Kozma did for us in the last six weeks of the season last year that we so have a high level on confidence that he can continue to do that," general manager John Mozeliak said.
