Rafael Furcal's new Dodgers deal is almost official

Rafael Furcal

Shortstop Rafael Furcal is in Los Angeles for a physical that will finalize his new three-year, $30-million contract with the Dodgers. The deal is expected to be made official this evening.

Furcal, 31, was limited to 36 regular-season games this year because of a bulging disk in his back that required surgery.

With Furcal signed, the Dodgers are expected to turn their attention to re-signing Manny Ramirez, and adding arms to their rotation and bullpen.
