Rafael Furcal came off the DL today, I’m not sure yet whether he’s in the lineup, although I can’t imagine that he isn’t. Chin-hui Tsao, who never appeared in a game after being recalled on Tuesday, was optioned back to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a roster spot, so the Dodgers are back to an 11-man pitching staff. … Juan Pierre was taking bunting practice a few minutes ago, almost four hours before game time, another example of just how hard this guy works. … Sorry I never posted yesterday, but it was a very productive day for me personally. Got my new car tagged, paid a bunch of bills, wrote a quick story for today’s paper on how Furcal appeared ready to return. All in all, though, it was a relaxing, refreshing day away from baseball, and it revved me up to get back to it tonight. Good thing for me, too, given that the Dodgers don’t have another off-day until April 23.
