Chicago Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer indicated on Tuesday that Kyuji Fujikawa, who is rehabbing with the team’s minor league affiliate after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, is close to making a comeback to the top team.

Fujikawa, 34, had the ligament-transplant surgery in June last year. Hoyer said the right-hander will make at least one more rehab outing with Triple-A Iowa.
