Rangers' Fujikawa confident in return from Tommy John surgery
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa is scheduled to pitch Friday, and the Rangers will be keeping a close eye on the pitcher to determine if he has fully recovered from Tommy John surgery or if he'll need time in the minors to open the season, MLB.com reports.

Fujikawa hasn't allowed a run in four Cactus League outings but has struggled a bit in two camp games. He remains confident his recovery is on track.

"This is still spring training, not the regular season," Fujikawa said. "It's only going to get better. Coming into spring training, the surgery was out of my mind. As a player, I am really confident. I am not sure what my role will be, but I'll be confident whatever the situation is."

Manager Jeff Banister is looking for the pitcher to build off his spring success.

"The guy is coming off Tommy John," Banister said. "There are good days and bad days. He has logged a couple of good ones. Let's see that continue."

Rangers' Maddux on Fujikawa: He's a 'prototypical Asian pitcher'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rangers reliever Kyuji Fujikawa, who was sidelined for more than a year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June 2013, is hoping to prove his coaching staff this spring that he belongs in a major-league roster, according to the Star Telegram.

"I have a lot of pride in myself, too," Fujikawa said. "I really have to look at it that way."

Fujikawa, 32, signed a one-year, $1 million minor-league deal with the Rangers this offseason. He's logged two scoreless innings and has appeared in some minor-league games this spring. Pitching coach Mike Maddux has been impressed with what he's seen out of Fujikawa thus far.

"He was one of the best of all-time, from what we understand," Maddux said. "In the short look that we've had, he's a prototypical Asian pitcher. He's got that invisible split that hitters just don't seem to recognize. He's similar to some of the guys we've seen in the past."

Report: Rangers, Kyuji Fujikawa agree to deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rangers have agreed to a deal with pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa, MLB.com reports.

Fujikawa will have to pass a physical before the deal is finalized, and that's no small hurdle to clear after having elbow surgery this past season. He made his season debut in early August and managed to post a 4.85 ERA and 17:6 K:BB ratio in 13 innings with the Cubs.
