JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal will have major surgery on his right elbow next week.
The team did not say in its statement Thursday how long the three-time All-Star will be out. Dr. James Andrews, the noted orthopedist, examined Furcal Wednesday and will perform Tommy John surgery.
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and general manager John Mozeliak will discuss Furcal's status at a news conference at spring training Thursday.
The 35-year-old Furcal has been sidelined since reinjuring the elbow he hurt late last season. Furcal and the team had tried rehab rather than reconstructive surgery in the offseason.
