04:35 AM ET 11.21 | Multitalented free-agent shortstop Rafael Furcal is being pursued by the Giants, A's, Dodgers and Cubs, with his former Braves team telling them they'd jump in if Yunel Escobar was included in a trade for San Diego Padres ace Jake Peavy. Furcal had a very interesting platform year for the Dodgers before becoming a free agent. He missed four months with a back injury but came back in time for the postseason. He finished the year with a .357 batting average and .439 on-base percentage in 36 regular-season games. He batted .258 while playing in all eight of the Dodgers' playoff games.
