New reliever sold on team 2 weeks ago
‘It was Cubs, Cubs, Cubs for Fujikawa
After meeting with Cubs management and sightseeing in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa had his mind set.
“From that day on, in my head it was Cubs, Cubs, Cubs,” Fujikawa said Friday in an introductory press conference in the team’s clubhouse at Wrigley Field.
Fujikawa, 32, signed a 2-year, $9.5 million deal with a vesting option for 2015 based on games finished in 2014. Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Fujikawa’s “durability” was a major factor in the Cubs’ interest, despite his age. The Cubs have said they’re reluctant to bid on free agents in their 30s.
