* Kyuji Fujikawa underwent an MRI on his right arm Tuesday but the team did not expect results until Wednesday because their orthopedic specialist, Dr. Stephen Gryzlo, was busy with surgeries. Fujikawa was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday for the second time this season with a strained right forearm. The right-hander, who was on the DL from April 13 to May 10 with the same problem, had to leave Sunday’s game in the ninth inning after feeling some discomfort. The right-hander has a 5.25 ERA in 12 games this season, giving up seven runs over 12 innings.
* On Tuesday, the Cubs erected mock-ups of the proposed advertising signage in right field and used tarps to represent the 6,000-square foot video screen they want to install in left field. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts watched from a rooftop on Sheffield Avenue. The Cubs are waiting for final approval from the city planning commission on their $300 million renovation plan for Wrigley Field, which they hope to start this offseason. The proposal includes installing the scoreboard in left and more advertising in right.
* Several of the Cubs plan on attending Wednesday’s Game 7 NHL playoff game between the Blackhawks and Red Wings in Chicago.
“There aren’t too many times a Game 7 comes around, especially being in town at the same time playing a day game,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “You have to do everything you can to go to that game.”
* Cubs wives and girlfriends will do their part to help raise funds for victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes at Wednesday’s game at Wrigley Field. Outfielder David DeJesus and his wife, Kim, are involved in a “mystery ball” event. Tickets are $40 per ball, and all proceeds will go to the families affected by the deadly storm.
Cubs players also will serve as celebrity bartenders on Friday at “American Junkie” in Chicago as part of the “Pour for Moore” fundraiser to support disaster relief. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross. Tickets are $15 per person for the event, which will run from 6-8 p.m. CT.
* Albert Almora was named Midwest League Player of the Week for May 20-26. The Cubs’ first-round pick in last year’s Draft, Almora batted .538 in his first week with the team. He had to leave Monday’s game with a strained left hamstring, injured while trying to track down a ball in the outfield. His status was day to day. After Monday’s game, Almora tweeted: “No worries! I’ll be back in a day or 2!! Good win boys!!! #slaphands”
* Alex Burnett certainly had an easy first day on the job with the Cubs on Monday. The right-handed reliever, claimed off waivers from the Orioles, arrived at U.S. Cellular Field about half an hour before the first pitch of the Cubs’ Interleague game against the White Sox. He could relax as Jeff Samardzija threw a complete game, two-hit shutout. Burnett, 25, was happy to get a chance to pitch. He appeared in two games with the Orioles this season after spending three years with the Twins.
“I was excited,” he said about his reaction at the news he had been claimed by the Cubs. “It’s a new opportunity and I’m in a great organization and a fresh start and they told me I was coming straight to the big leagues, and nothing better than that.”
Burnett, who knows a couple of the Cubs from the Arizona Fall League, was asked for a scouting report on himself.
“I just go right after guys and let the defense do the work and that’s what I live and die by,” he said.
* Arodys Vizcaino, on the 60-day disabled list rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, underwent an arthroscopic debridement on his right elbow. Vizcaino was feeling some discomfort after his throwing sessions and not recovering well, so he was examined by Dr. James Andrews, who found a calcium buildup and did the procedure. The problem is not related to the Tommy John surgery Vizcaino had, and the Cubs say Andrews found the ligaments were in good shape. The right-hander, who the Cubs acquired at the Trade Deadline last July from the Braves in the Paul Maholm deal, will not pick up a baseball for six weeks.
