Furcal was in the leadoff spot against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night. He has not played since April 27, when he hurt himself running to first base in a doubleheader at New York. He was hitting .309 with six RBI in 19 games.
The Dodgers also placed left-handed reliever George Sherrill on the 15-day DL because of tightness in his mid-back. He is 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA in 22 appearances.
