PHOENIX -- Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal completed his two-game rehabilitation stint with high Single-A Inland Empire on Wednesday, going hitless in two at-bats with one walk and one strikeout in a 9-1 loss to Lake Elsinore.

Furcal, who is on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring, is eligible for activation on Thursday, an off-day for the Dodgers. He is expected to be activated in time for Friday night's game at San Diego.

Furcal went 0 for 2 with two strikeouts and two walks for Inland Empire, playing six innings defensively in each game.
