Yusei Kikuchi declines $13 million player option

Mariners starter Yusei Kikuchi declined a player option that would have kept him in Seattle on a one-year, $13 million deal. Instead, he'll explore free agency this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

2021 was a tale of two halves for Kikuchi, who went 6-4 with a 3.48 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and .204 OBA prior to the All-Star break before going 1-4 with a 5.98 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, and .300 OBA during the back half of the season.

Yusei Kikuchi to get start skipped on Tuesday

Mariners manager Scott Servais announced after Monday's game that Tyler Anderson will get the start on Tuesday against Oakland instead of Yusei Kikuchi.

Fantasy Impact

It was expected after Servais would not confirm Tuesday's starting pitcher. Kikuchi has struggled mightily the second half of the year after a strong first half, especially this month where he has posted a 7.82 ERA in four starts. Servais did say Kikuchi could be available out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Impact

Kikuchi needed 72 pitches to get through the three innings. With his recent struggles, Seattle manager Scott Servais would not commit to Kikuchi in his next turn in the rotation when asked about him after the game on Thursday. This could be a situation to monitor.
