On the disabled list retroactive to Aug. 3, Furcal was scheduled to meet with Dr. Robert Watkins, his back surgeon, at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday in a routine meeting that was scheduled before Furcal felt the tightness.
"He came in a little tight today, didn't look terrible, but we were hoping that he had nothing," team trainer Stan Conte said. "So the fact that he had some tightness is concerning with a guy who had a back problem before. We take a half a step back and see how he does the rest of the day."
Furcal had been doing baseball activities at a steadily increasing intensity through Monday. Furcal took the day off from baseball activities Tuesday, received treatment and was to be re-evaluated Wednesday.
