Try to Contain Your Shock: Furcal Hurt Again

From Dodgers.com:

Rafael Furcal is hurting again.

One game into his injury rehabilitation at Triple-A Las Vegas, the shortstop was sent back to Los Angeles for a medical evaluation after experiencing discomfort in his lower back when he awoke on Tuesday.

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.
