[7/23/2016] Yusei Kikuchi tosses two shutout innings in Ni-gun start

Yusei Kikuchi (right side) started a Ni-gun game against Yokohama earlier today. He tossed two shutout innings, threw twenty-six pitches, did not allow a hit or walk, faced six batters, struck out five, and topped out at 155km/h.

Kikuchi’s next objective is to throw about sixty pitches. He could return to the active roster in time for a start during a three-game series against Rakuten that begins on August 5.
