Shortstop Rafael Furcal (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/6404/), who signed a $39 million, three-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/lad/) last month, will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Monday the procedure on Furcal's meniscus cartilage will be minor. Furcal is expected to recover fully in two to three weeks and should be ready when spring training opens, Colletti said.
