5/10 Fujikawa back

The Cubs activated Kyuji Fujikawa from the 15-day disabled list, and optioned pitcher Rafael Dolis to Triple-A Iowa. Fujikawa, 32, has been on the DL since April 13 with a strained right forearm. In two rehab games, he threw three scoreless innings, giving up one hit and walking one while striking out two. On Wednesday, he needed 16 pitches to throw two scoreless innings for Double-A Tennessee.

In five relief appearances with the Cubs before he was injured, Fujikawa is 1-0 with two saves and a 12.46 ERA.

Dolis, 25, did not give up an earned run in two relief appearances over two games with the Cubs. He had a 3.52 ERA in eight appearances at Iowa.

In other roster moves, reliever Kameron Loe was given his release. He was designated for assignment on Monday.

Good for Kuji. Hey isn’t Travis Wood having the best start so far this season? Who so far does he remind you of as a pitcher?

Please dont say sandy Koufax.
