Cubs | Kyuji Fujikawa placed on disabled list

The Chicago Cubs have placed CL Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained muscle in his right forearm. He said through an interpreter that the injury has bothered him for several days and may have contributed to his ineffectiveness Friday, April 12, when he blew a save against the San Francisco Giants. In a corresponding move, the team has recalled RP Rafael Dolis from Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs will use a closer-by-committee approach in Fujikawa's absence but neither Carlos Marmol nor Rafael Dolis, who was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take Fujikawa's place on the 25-man roster, will be used to save games. RPs Shawn Camp and James Russell are likely to see the bulk of the closing opportunities.
