Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, March 13, in Pensacola, Fla. He is expected to miss the entire season but hopes to participate in the Dominican Winter League to prove that he can still play. Furcal said he is experiencing so much pain in his right elbow that he is unable to touch the top of his head with his arm. He is eligible to become a free agent after the 2013 season.
