Mike Kickham: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham became a free agent Monday after being outrighted off Boston's big-league roster, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

The 31-year-old lefty made his first big-league appearances since 2014 last season, though he didn't do much with the opportunity, struggling to a 7.71 ERA in 14 innings of work. His 24.3 percent strikeout rate and 7.1 percent walk rate were both solid marks, however, suggesting that he could still be useful to a major-league team next season if he can trim his unsustainably poor 3.9 HR/9.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Headed to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham is expected to move to the bullpen after manager Ron Roenicke didn't name him as a starter for any of the Red Sox's final five games of the season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Chris Mazza was awarded a start over Kickham in Friday's series opener in Atlanta, while Nick Pivetta earned another nod for Sunday's finale versus the Braves after tossing five innings of one-run ball in his team debut Tuesday. Kickham hasn't been especially effective in his two spot starts and two long-relief appearances, giving up 11 runs on 18 hits and three walks over 11.2 innings.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Roughed up in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham (1-1) allowed six runs on seven hits (two home runs) while striking out three across 2.2 innings Wednesday as he took the loss against the Marlins.

Kickham was unable to keep the ball in the park as he surrendered a two-run homer to Garrett Cooper in the first and got taken yard again by Jorge Alfaro to cap off a four-run third inning for the Marlins. The 32-year-old's ERA ballooned to an 8.49, though he does have a 15:3 K:BB across 11.2 innings. It's unclear at the moment if manager Ron Roenicke has plans for Kickham to start again or if he'll return to a long-relief role out of the bullpen moving forward.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Rewarded with second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham will start Wednesday against the Marlins.

Kickham was rewarded with a second start after his effort last week against the Rays. In what was his first MLB start since 2013, he struck out eight across four innings.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Strikes out eight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out eight across four innings Thursday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

Kickham surrendered a pair of solo home runs, but also racked up 14 swinging strikes on 65 total pitches. This was his longest outing since joining the big-league club, and he's now struck out 12 hitters in nine innings of work. If Kickham remains in the rotation, he'll have the chance to work five innings for the first time this season. However, his role moving forward is a bit unclear as Boston continues to shuffle its rotation.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham will start Thursday against Tampa Bay.

Kickham is fresh off his first major league win -- he pitched two scoreless innings against the Blue Jays last Saturday -- and gets a chance to make his first MLB start since 2013. The left-hander has combined to throw five innings in two appearances as a bulk-inning reliever.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Picks up win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings Saturday, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four to earn the win versus the Blue Jays.

Kickham entered the game with the Red Sox down a run, but they scored twice in the bottom of the ninth inning to give him his first win. It was an improvement over his first appearance of the year, when he allowed three runs in three innings versus the Braves on Wednesday. Kickham can fill a versatile role , but he most likely projects as a multi-inning reliever going forward.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Surrenders three earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham allowed three earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out none across three innings Wednesday against the Braves. He did not factor into the decision.

Kickham followed an opener but was hit hard immediately upon entering the game. All three of his earned runs came in his first inning of work, including a two-run home run by the second batter he faced. He did settle in to record two scoreless frames before being pulled after 48 pitches. It's unclear how Boston will use Kickham going forward, as this was his season debut with the club.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Pitching behind opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham won't start Wednesday's game against the Braves but is expected to serve as Boston's primary pitcher out of the bullpen behind opener Robinson Leyer, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Given that Kickham hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2014, Boston likely wouldn't have counted on him to work especially deep if he had worked as a traditional starter, so covering the middle innings after Leyer records the first handful of outs should at least increase the 31-year-old lefty's chances of factoring into the decision. Kickham spent the 2019 season with the Marlins' Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans, compiling a 4.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 84:36 K:BB in 86.1 innings.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham will start Wednesday's game against the Braves, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

The 31-year-old had his contract selected by the Red Sox on Monday and will appear in the big leagues Wednesday for the first time since 2014. Given Boston's rotation struggles this season, a strong outing could be enough to earn a second look through the starting rotation. Kickham appeared in 31 games (13 starts) at the Triple-A level last season and had a 4.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 84:36 K:BB over 86.1 innings.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Called up by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham's contract was selected by the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

If the 31-year-old lefty gets into a game, it will be his first at the big-league level since 2014. He owns a career 10.98 ERA across 30.1 innings in the majors.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Added to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham was added to Boston's 60-man roster Saturday,

Kickham signed with the Red Sox in December as a non-roster invitee, and he'll get the chance to work with the team's 60-man player pool ahead of the abbreviated 2020 campaign. The 31-year-old made three appearances in spring training, allowing three earned runs while striking out six over 4.1 innings. His last major-league experience came in 2014, and he's unlikely to see significant time in the majors this season.

Red Sox's Mike Kickham: Signs minors deal with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham signed with the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee Friday.

The 31-year-old has thrown 30.1 career major-league innings, but none of them have come since 2014. He's spent the last three seasons with the Marlins, pitching primarily at the Triple-A level.

Marlins' Mike Kickham: Out with elbow inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham has left elbow inflammation and was reassigned to minor-league camp, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

He was in big-league camp as a non-roster invitee, but this injury will make it very difficult for him to make the big-league club out of spring training. Consider him out indefinitely.

Marlins' Mike Kickham: Inks minor-league deal with Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kickham signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Kickham hasn't pitched in the pros since a pair of brutal stints with the Giants in 2013 and 2014 that saw him allow 39 runs (37 earned) in just 30.1 innings of work. He spent all of last season split between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans, finishing the season with a respectable 3.65 ERA in 145.2 innings. Kickham could return to the majors in 2018 if he continues to pitch well in the minors, though it's more likely he serves as an organizational depth piece once again.
