Cubs place RHP Kyuji Fujikawa on 15-day D.L.


The Chicago Cubs today placed right-handed pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa on the 15-day disabled list with a muscular strain of his right forearm and recalled right-handed pitcher Rafael Dolis from Triple-A Iowa.

Dolis, 25, has posted no record and a 3.86 ERA (1 ER/2.1 IP) in three relief appearances with Iowa this season.  He has seen action with the Cubs each of the last two seasons, going 2-4 with four saves and a 6.18 ERA (27 ER/39.1 IP) in 35 career big league relief appearances.

The righthander made the Cubs Opening Day roster last season and had three stints with the club, going 2-4 with four saves and a 6.39 ERA (27 ER/38.0 IP) in 34 relief outings.  Dolis held left-handed hitters to a .141 batting average (9-for-64) while right-handed batters hit .388 (31-for-80).  With Iowa last season, Dolis went 0-1 with three saves and a 2.51 ERA (4 ER/14.1 IP).

Fujikawa, 32, has started his Cubs career 1-0 with two saves and a 12.46 ERA (6 ER/4.1 IP) in five relief appearances.  He signed a two-year deal with a vesting/club option for a third season during this past offseason.
