Furcal in midseason form

The Dodgers shortstop went 10 for 25 with a home run, five runs and four RBI for Aguilas in the Caribbean World Series in Santiago, D.R. That would seem to indicate that he has no lingering effects from the ankle injury that plagued him all of last season after he had that near-collision with Jason Repko in a Grapefruit League game against Baltimore in Vero Beach. … Also, the Dodgers are close to filling their Triple-A hitting coach vacancy, which was created when Mike Easler was promoted to big-league hitting coach after Don Mattingly stepped aside. John Moses, who spent 11 seasons in the majors as a role player and later was a first-base coach for both Seattle and Cincinnati, is believed to be the frontrunner for the job.
