Yusei Kikuchi Shines in Scoreless Outing Against Brewers

by Nate Miller | Blue Jays Correspondent | Wed, Jun 12th 8:53am EDT

Yusei Kikuchi delivered a stellar performance, tossing five scoreless innings while allowing just three hits and four walks, striking out five in the Blue Jays' 3-0 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a somewhat elevated walk rate in this outing, Kikuchi managed to keep the Brewers' bats quiet, contributing to his team's shutout win. This performance lowers his ERA to 3.26 and continues to solidify his role in the rotation. His season-long metrics, including a solid 8.8 K/9 and a 3.21 FIP, suggest that he can be a reliable fantasy option, especially in deeper leagues. However, his tendency to issue walks, as seen in this game, could be a concern for fantasy managers looking for more consistency from their pitchers.
