Kuji Fujikawa out for the year with Tommy John Surgery

In aside by berselius1 Comment

Kyuji Fujikawa left Sunday's game with an apparent re-aggravation of his forearm injury. After taking an MRI yesterday, he was diagnosed with a torn ligament and is due for TJS. This is a real bummer – Fujikawa looked pretty good after coming back from his first injury. The Cubs have him signed through next season, at $4m, and have a $5.5m club option for 2015. Fujikawa will be 35 and probably still getting his groove back from the surgery at that point, so I don't know if the Cubs would take it. We may have seen him throw his last pitch as a Cub.

At least the Cubs have Kevin Gregg. I can't believe I just said that (laughing)
