Rafael Furcal could finally debut for Marlins this week

HardballTalk

MLB.com’s Joe Frisario has an update on veteran infielder Rafael Furcal, who hasn’t appeared in a game this year …

The 36-year-old infielder’s legs are holding up nicely, and the Marlins could reinstate him as early as Friday for the start of the homestand against the Pirates.

“I don’t know when that day is coming, but it is probably coming soon,” Miami manager Mike Redmond said. “It was coming soon about a month ago, too, and it didn’t. I think it’s safe to say coming soon.”

Furcal signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with Miami over the winter and was expected to open 2014 as the Marlins’ starting second baseman, but he injured his left hamstring at the end of spring training and then suffered a groin strain on a late-April rehab assignment.

Furcal hasn’t played in the majors since 2012, when he batted .264/.325/.346 for the Cardinals.
