Rafael Furcal was placed on the bereavement list on Thursday, allowing him to return to his native Dominican Republic to visit an ailing relative.

Furcal will miss the Dodgers' three-game series in Boston, which starts Friday. Taking his place on the active roster will be Chin-lung Hu, who was recalled from triple-A Albuquerque.

Players can be on the bereavement list for a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven.

With Furcal out of the lineup, Manager Joe Torre moved Blake DeWitt into the leadoff spot on Thursday for the final game of the Dodgers' three-game series in Cincinnati. Jamey Carroll started at shortstop.
