News: Furcal (hamstring) is likely to require a full 20-day rehab stint, placing his targeted return date around May 5, according to MLB.com. Impact: Furcal returned to game action with High-A Jupiter on April 14 and will likely move to Double-A Jacksonville next week as he recovers from a hamstring strain. In his absence, Derek Dietrich has been keeping second base warm -- or scorching hot as it were -- and could be working his way into a timeshare if he continues to hit for power. Regardless, expect the Marlins to give Furcal plenty of maintenance days when he is finally ready to return to the field.(RotoWire, )

News: Furcal (hamstring) will begin a rehab stint with High-A Jupiter on Monday, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Impact: Furcal, who has been doing baseball activities for about a week, will spend next week at High-A Jupiter, before moving along to Double-A Jacksonville for a week. If all goes well, he'll return to the Marlins before the start of May. Jeff Baker and Derek Dietrich will continue to split time at second base in his absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Furcal (hamstring) has been performing baseball activities and may start playing in games at extended spring training as soon as Monday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Impact: Furcal's original target date of April 14 can be put to rest, but a return by the end of the month is likely, assuming he starts playing in games next week. Derek Dietrich is off to an excellent start as the lefty-hitting half of Miami's second-base platoon, while the right-handed Jeff Baker is struggling.(RotoWire, )
