Fujikawa given unconditional release from Rangers

NEW YORK (AP) Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa was placed on waivers Friday by the Texas Rangers to give him his unconditional release.

The Rangers had designated Fujikawa for assignment Sunday after the right-hander made only two appearances for them, allowing three runs in 1 2-3 innings. General manager Jon Daniels said then that Fujikawa had indicated that he didn't want to go back to the minor leagues.

The 34-year-old Fujikawa signed with Texas last winter after spending the last two seasons with the Chicago Cubs. His time with the Cubs included a 14-month layoff following Tommy John surgery, and he started this season on the disabled list with a right groin strain.
