Reliever Kyuji Fujikawa Set for Rangers Debut

    Kyuji Fujikawa (L-R, 6'0", 190lbs, July 21, 1980).

    Right-hander Kyuji Fujikawa has been activated from the 15-day disabled list, setting the stage for the Japanese reliever's debut with the Texas Rangers.

    Texas activated Fujikawa before Thursday's series finale against Kansas City. Right-hander Spencer Patton was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Fujikawa was signed as a free agent last winter. He was placed on the disabled list before the season because of a right groin strain.

    The 34-year-old reliever had a 3.86 ERA in 10 relief appearances for Round Rock.

    Fujikawa signed with Texas after spending the last two seasons with the Chicago Cubs. His time with the Cubs included a 14-month layoff following Tommy John surgery.
