• Cubs reliever Kyuji Fujikawa underwent an MRI on his right arm Tuesday, but the team did not expect results until Wednesday because its orthopedic specialist, Dr. Stephen Gryzlo, was busy with surgeries.
Fujikawa was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday for the second time this season with a strained right forearm. The right-hander, who was on the DL from April 13 to May 10 with the same problem, had to leave Sunday's game in the ninth inning after feeling some discomfort.
The right-hander has a 5.25 ERA in 12 games this season, giving up seven runs over 12 innings.
• On Tuesday, the Cubs erected mock-ups of the proposed advertising signage in right field and used tarps to represent the 6,000-square-foot video screen they want to install in left field. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts watched from a rooftop on Sheffield Avenue.
The Cubs are waiting for final approval from the city planning commission on their $300 million renovation plan for Wrigley Field, which they hope to start this offseason. The proposal includes installing the scoreboard in left and more advertising in right.
• Several of the Cubs plan on attending Wednesday's Game 7 NHL playoff game between the Blackhawks and Red Wings in Chicago.
"There aren't too many times a Game 7 comes around, especially being in town at the same time playing a day game," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "You have to do everything you can to go to that game."
Will he tell Feldman, who is starting Wednesday, to hurry up?
"We'll make it," Sveum said. "They'll hold the game up for us."
• Cubs wives and girlfriends will do their part to help raise funds for victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes at Wednesday's game at Wrigley Field. Outfielder David DeJesus and his wife, Kim, are involved in a "mystery ball" event. Tickets are $40 per ball, and all proceeds will go to the families affected by the deadly storm.
The Cubs play host to the White Sox in an Interleague game that day.
Cubs players also will serve as celebrity bartenders on Friday at "American Junkie" in Chicago as part of the "Pour for Moore" fundraiser to support disaster relief. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross. Tickets are $15 per person for the event, which will run from 6-8 p.m. CT.
• Albert Almora was named Midwest League Player of the Week for May 20-26. The Cubs' first-round pick in last year's Draft, and No. 2 prospect, batted .538 in his first week with the team. He had to leave Monday's game with a strained left hamstring, injured while trying to track down a ball in the outfield. His status is day to day.
After Monday's game, Almora tweeted: "No worries! I'll be back in a day or 2!! Good win boys!!! #slaphands"
