Kikuchi Strikes Out Nine, Blue Jays Fall Short

Yusei Kikuchi struck out nine while allowing one earned run over 4.1 innings in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

He surrendered six hits and walked one, throwing 88 pitches before exiting. Despite a strong individual performance marked by a high strikeout count, Kikuchi's efforts weren't enough to secure a win for the Blue Jays. His season ERA slightly rose to 2.60, maintaining a solid WHIP of 1.10. Kikuchi's high strikeout rate continues to make him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues, particularly in categories that reward strikeouts and ERA. However, his win potential may be hampered by the team's inconsistent run support, as evidenced in this tight contest.
