FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Kyuji Fujikawa is getting a two-year, $9.5 million deal from the Cubs.

It's quite a bit of money for a rebuilding team to be giving to a reliever, but Fujikawa should be able to finally provide a steady presence at the back end of the Cubs' bullpen. The 32-year-old from Kochi, Japan posted a 1.77 ERA and 11.8 K/9 across 12 seasons of Nippon Professional Baseball. His deal comes with a vesting option for 2015 based on games finished. If it doesn't vest, the Cubs will hold a $5.5 million team option.

Wily Peralta held the Cardinals to one run over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 5-1 Brewers win.

The dominant performance pushed Milwaukee to an 11-4 record and a two-game lead over the Cardinals in the National League Central standings. Peralta had his sinker and slider working, fanning three batters and scattering six hits over his 6 1/3 frames. He issued just one walk. The 24-year-old right-hander will bring a 2-0 record and 1.96 ERA into his next start at home against the Padres. That's a juicy fantasy matchup.

Mike Napoli (finger) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but may need a few more days off. Daniel Nava is starting at first base Wednesday in Chicago.
Apr 16 - 4:10 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Pedroia will lead off and play second base in the second game of a three-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. He was diagnosed Monday with inflammation in his left wrist and given a cortisone shot to help him through the discomfort.

Masahiro Tanaka shut out the Cubs for eight innings as the Yankees grabbed a 3-0 win in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Tanaka was scheduled to pitch on Tuesday but the game was called because of rain. He looked well-rested on Wednesday afternoon, yielding just two hits and one walk over his eight shutout frames while racking up 10 strikeouts. It was Tanaka's most dominant start so far in the major leagues, and he'll carry an outstanding 2-0 record, 2.05 ERA, and 0.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Rays.

Mariners recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma.

Franklin earned the promotion after batting .395/.469/.744 with four homers and 13 RBI over his first 11 Triple-A contests this season. While he has yet to play the outfield in any professional game, Franklin played there some in spring training and the rumor is that he could see some time there while up with the big club. He'd probably have to be used some in the outfield to have much fantasy value, as there's really no room for him to play anywhere else.

Mariners placed OF/1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a right hamstring strain.

Morrison actually suffered the injury on Monday before he took an at-bat or went to his position. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. LoMo was off to a .150/.227/.150 start with no homers and no RBI in eight games so far this season.
Apr 16 - 3:44 PM

Johnny Cueto spun a gem Wednesday, striking out 12 while giving up just three base hits in a 4-0 shutout win over the Pirates.

A one-out Andrew McCutchen double in the fourth inning was the only time all day the Pirates reached second base. Cueto even contributed a rare hit at the plate. The Reds right-hander only has one win to show for it but has been magnificent so far this season, posting a 1.50 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 35/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. He'll face the Pirates again next week.

Jose Tabata has been diagnosed with "mild" concussion-like symptoms.

Tabata had to leave Wednesday's game after colliding with the left field wall. Even though his concussion symptoms are apparently "mild," the Pirates are surely going to place him on the 7-day concussion DL. Travis Snider would see a bump in playing time with Tabata out.
Apr 16 - 2:42 PM

Joe Kelly left Wednesday's game against the Brewers with a left hamstring injury.

Kelly was trying to beat out a bunt and grabbed at the hamstring after running through the bag. He had to be helped down the dugout steps, so the odds of him needing a disabled list stint are probably pretty good. Carlos Martinez would be the first choice that comes to mind replace Kelly in the rotation, but it's possible the Cards will elect to leave him in the bullpen and promote someone like Tyler Lyons. Lyons started for Triple-A Memphis Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 2:32 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that he expects Curtis Granderson (ribs) back in the lineup on Saturday.

Granderson injured his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's missing a second straight start Wednesday and evidently will sit out Friday, as well, following Thursday's off day. The offseason signee will return to a .170/.291/.319 batting line with one homer and four RBI on Saturday.
Apr 16 - 1:16 PM

Wednesday's game between the Blue Jays and Twins has been postponed due to inclement weather.

They're expecting a few inches of snow in Minneapolis Wednesday, so they went ahead and banged the game well before first pitch. The weather is supposed to be much better Thursday, when a split doubleheader will now be on the docket. Wednesday's scheduled starters, R.A. Dickey and Mike Pelfrey, will presumably just be pushed back a day.
