5/8 Fujikawa rehab outing

Kyuji Fujikawa threw 16 pitches over two innings in his second rehab outing Wednesday. The Japanese right-hander entered in the seventh for Double-A Tennessee against Birmingham, and retired the side in order, needing just six pitches. In the eighth, he gave up a leadoff single, then picked off the base runner. Of his 16 total pitches, 10 were strikes.

The reliever has been on the disabled list since April 13 with a strained right forearm. He was expected to join the Cubs this weekend in Washington to face the Nationals.
