VIERA, Fla. — Rafael Furcal had hoped to make his spring training debut Sunday. Instead, the 35-year-old shortstop was told to stop baseball activities.

Trying to come back from a torn ligament in his right elbow, the three-time All-Star has been told he must have additional medical tests.

"He's just not feeling good, kind of went in a bad direction," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday. "We don't know the severity of it, but it wasn't good news."

With Furcal out indefinitely, Pete Kozma and Ronny Cedeno are the likely candidates to take over at shortstop unless there is a trade.
