CHICAGO (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says Japanese closer Kyuji Fujikawa and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a two-year contract for $9.5 million.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the signing has not been announced. Foxsports.com first reported the deal Saturday.

The 32-year-old Fujikawa pitched for two-time World Baseball Classic champion Japan and played in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He had 220 saves in 12 seasons with Hanshin and became an unrestricted free agent last month.

Closer Carlos Marmol remains on the Cubs' roster. The team tried to trade him to the Los Angeles Angels for starting pitcher Dan Haren last month, but that deal fell apart.
