Furcal's Rehab Assignment Halted
Update: More on this at the Times:
"Obviously it's not good news," Dodgers Manager Joe Torre said.Also at mlb.com:
"He felt so good about himself, with this exercise program he was on. I'm sure for him it's really frustrating."
Furcal has a bulging disk in his lower back. Although he has been reluctant to discuss the possibility of surgery, that often is the course of action when conservative measures such as core strengthening do not resolve nerve pain.
