Furcal has $4 million left on his contract.

The Cardinals will be the third team for Fucal, having spent six season in Atlanta, before coming to the Dodgers for the past six seasons.

In his time with Los Angeles, Furcal collected 711 hits and hit .283.

The Dodgers are expected to assign the power hitting 25-year old Castellanos to Double-A Chattanooga.
