After Kikuchi turned in a 5.19 ERA while being demoted to the bullpen last season, his status on the club was uncertain this spring. However, the left-hander has worked to a 1.00 ERA with 25 strikeouts across six appearances and 18 innings pitched this spring. However, he still owns a career 5.02 ERA across four MLB seasons as he still has plenty to prove when the regular season rolls around.
