Josh Towers Released, Rafael Furcal Returning?

Josh Towers was released after opting out of his minor league contract upon having not been called up. He follows the lead of Luis Ayala.


Rafael Furcal could return Sunday, which would greatly improve the Dodger defense.
"Only thing we're concerned about is stuff that may surprise his body, quick moves whether it's at shortstop or out of the box," Torre said. "One game is certainly not enough to get his timing, he'll have to get that here."
The Dodgers didn't want to send Furcal to Triple-A Albuquerque or Class A Inland Empire because the team can control the game action in extended spring training, potentially giving Furcal a look at as many or as few situations as it deems necessary.
