CHICAGO -- Cubs pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa threw 32 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday, his first since going on the disabled list on April 13, and will do so again before he makes a Minor League rehab outing.
Fujikawa, sidelined with a strained right forearm, was expected to join Triple-A Iowa on Sunday if all goes well.
"Things didn't go real crisp today," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said of the session. "Everything was fine and he felt great and everything, but the location wasn't where we wanted it to be."
• Scott Baker, coming back from Tommy John surgery one year ago, resumed his throwing program on Monday in Mesa, Ariz. Baker threw from about 45 feet.
• Matt Garza, on the disabled list with a strained left lat, was to start Wednesday for Double-A Tennessee, which would be his second Minor League rehab outing. He will make at least three such starts.
• Catcher Steve Clevenger, on the DL with a strained left oblique, was able to catch two bullpen sessions on Monday and is throwing from 120-130 feet. He expected to start swinging a bat early next week.
