Milwaukee Brewers v Chicago Cubs

The struggling Chicago Cubs bullpen got some bad news today, after it was revealed closer Kyuji Fujikawa was being placed on the disabled list with a forearm injury.

Fujikawa, who took over the closer’s role from Carlos Marmol just last week, has posted a 12.46 ERA, 2.63 FIP and 3.96 xFIP in five games this season.

Chicago manager Dale Sveum will now likely turn to a closer by committee between relievers James Russell, Shawn Camp, Michael Bowden and Carlos Marmol.
