Rangers complete deal with right-handed reliever Fujikawa

The Texas Rangers on Tuesday completed the details on a one-year deal for right-handed reliever Kyuji Fujikawa. He will receive a base salary of $1 million with incentives based on appearances and innings. The Rangers hold an option on Fujikawa for 2016. Fujikawa, 34, was a star reliever for 12 seasons with Hanshin of the Japan Pacific League. He joined the Chicago Cubs in 2013 but made only 12 appearances before undergoing Tommy John surgery. Fujikawa returned late last season and had a 4.85 ERA with 26 baserunners allowed in 13 innings.
