Rangers claimed LHP Mike Kickham off waivers from the Mariners.

The Mariners cut bait with Kickham to clear a spot on the roster for Joe Biemel. Kickham had struggled in Triple-A this season, with a 7.29 ERA and 28 walks in just 21 innings. Unless he's able to show significant improvement in his control, he's not touching the majors.

Mariners acquired LHP Mike Kickham from the Cubs for RHP Lars Huijer.

Kickham was just designated for assignment by the Cubs late last week. This will be his third organization since the end of the 2014 season. The 26-year-old spent most of last year with the Giants' Triple-A affiliate, posting a 4.43 ERA with a 131/64 K/BB ratio over 148 1/3 innings. He has an option remaining, so he'll likely begin 2015 in the minors.

Cubs designated LHP Mike Kickham for assignment.

Kickham was just claimed off waivers from the Giants a couple weeks ago, but the Cubs needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Chris Denorfia. There's a decent chance Kickham clears waivers this time.

Cubs claimed LHP Mike Kickham off waivers from the Giants.

Kickham's mainly a reliever, but has made several spot starts for the Giants over the last few seasons. In 28+ innings in 2013, he allowed 46 hits and struggled to the tune of a 10.16 ERA. He spent most of 2014 in Triple-A, where he compiled a 4.46 ERA. While he hasn't shown much in the majors, he could see some action with the Cubs if they need a lefty to fill relief innings.
