Cubs signed RHP Kyuji Fujikawa to a two-year, $9.5 million contract.

There's also a vesting option for 2015. Fujikawa will be introduced at a press conference Friday, but he's obviously already passed his physical in order to make the deal official. The Japanese import posted a 1.77 ERA and 11.8 K/9 across 12 seasons of Nippon Professional Baseball. Although the Cubs plan to start next season with Carlos Marmol as their closer, Fujikawa will be a popular fantasy selection for those speculating for saves.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that the Nationals, Dodgers, and Red Sox are among the clubs who closely scouting Phillies reliever Pat Neshek.

Neshek is a popular name right now, as FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported last week that the Brewers and Rays were also in the mix. An impending free agent, the 36-year-old Neshek owns a dominant 1.12 ERA and 45/5 K/BB ratio over 40 1/3 innings this season. He's coming off his second career All-Star selection.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the initial prognosis suggests that Clayton Kershaw (back) will miss 4-6 weeks.

We'll have a better idea about the official timetable after Kershaw sees Dr. Robert Watkins, but this would place his return somewhere around the start of September. On the bright side, it doesn't appear to be as serious as the back injury he dealt with last year. The Dodgers are cruising in the NL West and should be fine, but it's a tough blow for fantasy owners.

Cubs activated RHP Kyle Hendricks from the 10-day disabled list.

Hendricks is finally ready to rock after missing six weeks due to tendinitis in his pitching hand. He'll return Monday against the White Sox. Hendricks was off to an underwhelming start prior to the injury, posting a 4.09 ERA and 51/21 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings over 11 starts.

Addison Russell is not in Monday's lineup against the White Sox.

It sounds like a routine day off. Javier Baez will start at shortstop while Ben Zobrist will play second base.

Willson Contreras blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning on Sunday, powering the Cubs to a 5-3 victory over the Cardinals.

Contreras tagged Cardinals' starter Michael Wacha for the game-changing blast. He finished the night 1-for-4. The hard-hitting backstop is slashing .269/.334/.491 with 15 long balls and 52 RBI on the season.

Matt Carpenter was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs due to right quadriceps tightness.

The injury appeared to occur while Carpenter was running the bases. The severity of the injury is not yet known. Luke Voit replaced him at first base on Sunday. Look for an update from the Cardinals on Carpenter's status after the conclusion of Sunday's game.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's game that Clayton Kershaw would be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Roberts was quick to point out that he didn't feel this injury was similar to the herniated disc issue that cost Kershaw two months during the 2016 season. It does look like it'll sideline him for a couple of weeks however. No timetable will be placed on his potential return until he meets with team doctors on Monday.

Kenley Jansen blew his first save of the season when he surrendered a three-run, game-tying home run to Matt Adams in the ninth inning of Sunday's 5-4, 10-inning win over the Braves.

Jansen was struggling by degrees even before Adams socked the game-tying home run with two outs, having allowed singles to Freddie Freeman and Matt Kemp to initially put the Dodgers' 4-1 lead in jeopardy. Blown save aside, Jansen has been brilliant overall. He owns a 1.49 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 62/2 K/BB ratio for the season as a whole and is now 24-of-25 in save chances.
Jul 23 - 8:24 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs and a walk in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Mariners.

Gregorius cracked solo dingers off Yovani Gallardo in the second and fourth innings. Both were short shorts down the extreme right field line and neither went longer than 360 feet, but they counted all the same. The shortstop is slashing .304/.335/.495 with 14 homers and 44 RBI overall. He has turned himself into an incredibly consistent hitter since joining the Yankees.
Jul 23 - 7:55 PM

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three total RBI in Sunday's 13-3 win over the Pirates.

Reynolds mashed a two-run tater in the sixth inning and later came through with a monster solo shot in the eighth which traveled an estimated 460 feet. This was the veteran first baseman's second two-homer game of the season and he is now up to 22 long balls for the campaign as a whole. In addition, Reynolds is hitting .286/.375/.525 and has driven in 70 runs. He is looking to crack 30 home runs for the first time since he swatted 37 in 2011 with the Orioles.
Jul 23 - 7:03 PM

Red Sox team president Dave Dombrowski announced Sunday that top prospect Rafael Devers will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to play third base.

Devers was just moved up to Triple-A on July 14 where he hit .355 with a pair of homers and four RBI in his eight games. The 20-year-old sensation should get a chance to hold the position for the remainder of the season and could be a worthwhile investment in mixed leagues.
