Cubs | Kyuji Fujikawa continues throwing

Chicago Cubs RP Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) is throwing from 135 feet on flat ground but has yet to throw a bullpen session.

Fantasy Tip: Dale Sveum continues to go with a closer-by-committee for save situations in Chicago, and it now appears as though Carlos Marmol is back in that picture, along with newcomer Kevin Gregg. Marmol blew his first chance Tuesday, though, and Gregg is a dubious propsect for saves, too. Fujikawa has a ways to go before he can return to the bullpen, but he's worth hanging on to, because if the back end of the pen continues to falter in crucial situations, Fujikawa will probably be in consideration to close again when he returns.
