Pete Kozma, Daniel Descalso and Kolten Wong all homered Thursday in the Cardinals' 7-6 win over the Yankees.
Rafael Furcal announces that he's undergoing Tommy John surgery and all of the Cardinals' middle-infield candidates decide to step it up at once. The homers were the second of the spring for both Kozma and Descalso. Those two are likely the favorites to be the Opening Day double-play combination, with Kozma at short and Descalso at second. Still, Ronny Cedeno and Matt Carpenter remain in the mix. As for Wong, he's due a couple of months in the minors, but he could take over at second later on.
