Injury Update. A Bad One

From Diamond:

The Dodgers will place Rafael Furcal (back) on the disabled list retroactive to May 6 and call up 27-year-old utility infielder Luis Maza, who is hitting .402 to make his major league debut. Furcal did not make the road trip and instead underwent an MRI this morning, which confirmed that he has a back strain. He will receive a cortisone shot tomorrow and begin rehabilitation with physical therapist Sue Falsone on Wednesday.

Do your magic, Sue!

Doesn't this mean Kristen Bell wins?

She won anyways, though Furcal put up a great fight.

This guy is good. I've watched him playing for years.
He's an utility infielder, he even can play in the outfield (not that the Dodgers need that). Has good speed and is a contact hitter.
