2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Kickham was called up as a starter in 2013 due to various injuries to the Giants' starting rotation. His time as a starter was nothing short of disastrous, as Kickham produced an ugly 13.94 ERA in three starts. It is interesting to note that Kickham shut out opponents in the first inning of all his starts, so the theory that he would be more effective as a reliever came about. The Giants tested this out when they called Kickham back up in September, using him primarily as a left-handed reliever, and he didn't allow an earned run in four of his six appearances. This short stint of success gives Kickham an outside chance of earning a bullpen spot in 2014, but he will likely start the year at Triple-A Fresno.
