Kikuchi?

Recommended Posts

So, that Yusei Kikuchi guy from Japan was posted this morning, allowing all 30 teams to bid on offering him a contract.

He's a lefty and went 14-4 with a 3.08 ERA in 163 2/3 innings (23 starts, 153 strikeouts), but missed time for shoulder stiffness and has had shoulder issues over his carrer.

92-94 average fastball, reaching 96-98 sometimes.

Secondary pitch a slider, mixes in a curveball and changeup.

Multiple MLB scouts view his ceiling as a No. 2 starter.

He's not subject to international bonus pool restrictions.

Teams have 30 days to negotiate a deal.  Boras is his agent.

If we're truly interested in leaving no stones un-turned in a search for talent, should we be in on this guy too?

All I needed to know about our prospects.

This has nothing to do with our minor league system, I don't see the connection.

I believe this team got the money to spend now.

And they need to do all they can in free agency (within reason) because it allows them to add talent without losing talent.
