Who's the Cubs closer? Right now, it will be determined by matchups. Kyuji Fujikawa took over for Marmol, but he then had to go on the disabled list because of a strained right forearm.
"When he comes back, we'll find out how he's throwing, and maybe we have a closer by that time," Sveum said. "If not, [Fujikawa] will obviously pitch late in the game."
Fujikawa stayed in Chicago to do his rehab work, and was throwing from about 120 feet on flat ground.
The Cubs are 3-for-8 in save situations, and five different pitchers each have a blown save (Marmol, Fujikawa, Michael Bowden, James Russell and Shawn Camp).
