Rafael Furcal: (Elbow) Tommy John Surgery
Update: Furcal (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow next week, reports.

Recommendation: The Cardinals will not have a timetable for Furcal's return until after the procedure, but the injury will prevent Furcal from playing Opening Day, and keep him out at least several months. With Furcal on the sidelines, Ronny Cedeno and Pete Kozma are the frontrunners to nab the starting shortstop job on Opening Day.
