BREAKING NEWS: There are a number of (potential) roster moves happening now for the Chicago Cubs. Relief pitcher, Kyuji Fujikawa has been activated from the 60-day disabled list and will be available for tonight's game against the Colorado Rockies. Fujikawa, 34, is recovering from Tommy John Surgery and has surrendered just one earned run in 11.2 innings during his rehab with the AZL Cubs (RK), Kane County Cougars (A) and Iowa Cubs (AAA).
In order to clear roster space the Cubs have designated OF Nate Schierholtz for assignment. After a career year in 2013, Schierholtz has put the worst season of his career, hitting just .192 with six home runs in 313 at bats. (per Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors)
