Cubs manager Dale Sveum said that Fujikawa will make two rehab appearances before retaking his place on the roster.
"We haven't talked about it, but I'm sure it'll be two appearances," Sveum said. "We don't want to keep him down and give him back-to-back appearances, something like that."
Fujikawa has said that, when suffering from this injury in the past, it has kept him sidelined for 10 days. After doing the quick math, Sveum noted that Fujikawa's 15th day falls at the end of this road trip.
In the bullpen Friday, the closer threw 25 pitches on flat ground. The plan is to have him throw 30-35 pitches in the 'pen on Monday.
