Yu Darvish TEX DNP                     Next start: June 2 vs Royals.
Kyuji Fujikawa CHC DNP                     Needs TJ surgery and will be out the rest of the season. From the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan: ... But the Cubs never got much of an opportunity to see Fujikawa show that his dominant numbers in Japan could translate to the major leagues, and on Wednesday announced he'll undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and be sidelined for the rest of the 2013 season. The timetable for his return is unknown, but chances are he'll only have a few months in 2014 to prove he'll be healthy enough for the Cubs to pick up his $5.5 million option in 2015.
