Cubs’ Fujikawa put on 15-day DL


Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa was placed on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season on Monday with a muscle strain in his right forearm.

The 32-year-old right-hander made his MLB debut last month for the Cubs after spending 14 seasons with the Hanshin Tigers and earning All-Star honors four times.

Fujikawa was 1-1 with two saves and a 5.25 ERA over 12 relief appearances for the Cubs despite spending April 13 to May 10 on the DL with what appears to be the same injury.
