Day 22: Twins @ Cardinals

Jenifer Langosch/

Below are lineups for today’s Grapefruit League game, the team’s last one before the first of three spring off days. While the Cardinals are preparing to face the  Twins, Rafael Furcal will be seeing Dr. Paletta, the organization’s team doctor, to get an opinion on his ailing right elbow. Said Furcal this morning: “I want to be in there but I can’t do it right now.”

He didn’t want to speculate about his readiness by Opening Day, though it’s hard to see a scenario in which Furcal doesn’t open the season on the disabled list. I’ll bring you an update on Furcal’s situation later this afternoon.

On a much-less serious injury front, Marc Rzepczynski will not pitch in a game until at least Thursday due to some biceps tightness in his left arm.
