Rafael Furcal set to restart rehab Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"We didn't really talk about how many games," manager Mike Redmond told MLB.com Tuesday. "But it's just like we talked about earlier when he starts coming back. He's got to be able to show his legs can play multiple days in a row and he can feel good and be able to run. That's the biggest thing."

"At 36, and being that veteran player, you've got to lean on him some in that decision process. In his desire to come back, he's probably stretched himself a little more than he needs to."
