Cubs activate Kyuji Fuwikawa from disabled list

David Banks

The Chicago Cubs made a few roster moves, activating Fuwikawa from the DL, demoting Rafael Dolis, and releasing Kameron Loe.

The Chicago Cubs activated reliever Kyuji Fuwikawa from the disabled list on Friday. The right hander was placed on the disabled list on April 13. To create room on the roster, the Cubs demoted Rafael Dolis to Triple-A Iowa

Fujikawa has been suffering from a forearm strain reports ESPN.com. He claimed to feel discomfort at the end of spring training, but attempted to pitch through the injury. The result of that attempt was six earned runs over 4.1 innings.

The Cubs signed Fujikawa, 32, to a two year, $9.5 million deal out of Japan during the off season. In six seasons spent as a reliever in the Japanese Central League, Fujikawa posted a 1.36 ERA with phenomenal peripheral numbers. He pitched three scoreless innings in the minors during a rehab stint.

Dolis was called up on Monday after the Cubs designated struggling right hander Kameron Loe for assignment. He pitched two games in this major league stint, allowing two hits and two unearned runs.

Loe was also granted a release on Friday. He will now be a free agent.
