Chicago Cubs

The lastest on Kyuji Fujikawa, from MLB.com's Carrie Muskat:

Kyuji Fujikawa joined the Cubs at Coors Field, and he is expected to be activated this week, possibly as early as Wednesday.

... "He came in today and said he's ready to go, however I want to use him," manager Rick Renteria said. "We'll try to find a spot that suits him the best."

New York Yankees

Masahiro Tanaka does a little more throwing. From the Sports Xchange:

New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka threw again Tuesday with increased intensity from flat ground as he attempts to work his way back from a small ligament tear in his right elbow.

... A day earlier, Tanaka made 25 light tosses on flat ground. The 25-year-old will rest the arm Wednesday before throwing again Thursday.
