Manny news good; not so much for Furcal
ATLANTA -- The Dodgers finally had an upbeat report on the health of disabled outfielder Manny Ramirez, but not so much on disabled shortstop Rafael Furcal.
Ramirez jogged on a treadmill at the club's Camelback Ranch-Glendale complex in Arizona, while continuing to do all baseball activities except running the bases.
"He had a good day," said trainer Stan Conte.
Ramirez has been disabled since July 17 with his second right calf muscle strain this year and still hasn't run full speed.
However, manager Joe Torre said it's now "unlikely" that Furcal will be healthy enough to be activated Tuesday, when he's eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list.
"He's better than yesterday, but [discomfort] hasn't disappeared," said Torre. "When he's void of discomfort, he'll go to rehab. Today, he still feels it."
