Shortstop Rafael Furcal and the Los Angeles Dodgers were on the verge of agreeing to a $39 million, three-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations said late Saturday night. The deal could be announced as early as Sunday, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet final. Atlanta wanted to re-sign Furcal, who also was courted by the Chicago Cubs. Los Angeles, making its first major move under new general manager Ned Colletti, joined negotiations only in the past week. Paul Kinzer, Furcal's agent, said he could not discuss his client's status until Sunday. Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch said the team didn't have anything to announce Saturday.
