Kyuji Fujikawa: Reaches Two-Year Deal With Cubs

Rotowire.com
Update: Fujikawa agreed to a two-year contract worth $9.5 million with the Cubs on Saturday, FoxSports.com reports.

Recommendation: The Angels had reportedly been the frontrunner to land the Japanese closer, but the Cubs snagged him. Fujikawa is one of Japan's top closers. He likely will close for the Cubs, taking the job from the erratic Carlos Marmol. The deal also has a vesting option for a third year.
