(KSDK Sports) -- The Cardinals are in need of some insurance at shortstop because, of the uncertainty with the health of Rafael Furcal.
Furcal missed the 2012 post season due to an elbow injury. Luckily, the injury did not require surgery and the club says he is now healthy.
With the addition of Ronny Cedeno, who the Cardinals signed on Monday, the infield for the Cardinals should be one of the most "competitive" in spring training.
Manager Mike Matheny believes "competition" is a good thing.
