Cubs place Fujikawa on DL

The Chicago Cubs have placed pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa on the 15-day disabled list with a muscular strain of his right forearm.

Fujikawa, who is 1-1 with two saves and a 5.25 ERA in 12 relief appearances, spent nearly a month on the DL earlier this season with a related injury.

The Cubs have also claimed pitcher Alex Burnett off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles. Burnett yielded three runs in 1 1/3 innings for Baltimore before he was designated for assignment on May 23.
