Cubs | Kyuji Fujikawa to pitch again

Chicago Cubs RP Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) will make his second rehab outing with Double-A Tennessee and throw one inning Tuesday, May 7. He struck out two and walked one in an inning with Triple-A Iowa Sunday, May 5. Fujikawa should be ready to be activated from the disabled list after his outing Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Fujikawa should be owned in all leagues still, despite his trip to the DL. The Cubs bullpen has struggled all season and is still in closer-by-committe status involving Kevin Gregg and Carlos Marmol. Fujikawa is likely to enter that mix eventually, and he could regain the sole closer duties if he pitches well upon his return.
