Cubs activate RHP Fujikawa from 60-day DL, designate Schierholtz for assignment

  • Print

DENVER - The Chicago Cubs have activated right-hander Kyuji Fujikawa from the 60-day disabled list. Fujikawa will be available to pitch against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

To make room for Fujikawa on the roster, the Cubs designated outfielder Nate Schierholtz for assignment.

The 34-year-old Fujikawa has missed 14 months following Tommy John surgery. He made his Cubs debut last year after 12 seasons with the Hanshin Tigers in Japan's Central League. Fujikawa was 1-1 with a 5.25 ERA in 12 appearances in 2013 before being injured.

Schierholtz hit a career-high 21 home runs for the Cubs last season, but struggled this year. He was hitting .192 with six home runs and 33 RBIs in 99 games this season.
