Marlins re-signed LHP Mike Kickham to a minor league contract.

Kickham posted a decent 3.65 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 119/24 K/BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings (25 starts, two relief appearances) last season between the Marlins' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. The 29-year-old southpaw last appeared in a major league game in 2014 with the Giants.

Giants signed LHP Mike Kickham to a minor league contract.

Kickham spent the first six years of his pro career with the Giants before pitching in the minors for the Mariners and Rangers last season. He had a nightmarish 2015 campaign, posting a 7.00 ERA while walking 35 over 27 Triple-A innings.

Rangers sent LHP Mike Kickham outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

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 optioned LHP Mike Kickham to Triple-A Tacoma; re-assigned Cs Steve Baron, Marcus Littlewood, Tyler Marlette and Mike Dowd, RHPs Sam Gaviglio, Stephen Landazuri and Forrest Snow to minor league camp.

Acquired from the Cubs in January, Kickham allowed three runs -- zero earned -- while walking four over 3 1/3 innings during Cactus League play. The Mariners could use him as starter or reliever depth in the minors.

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.

Kickham joined the Giants on Tuesday as one of the club's September callups and made a short-lived appearance in Tuesday night's win over the Rockies -- allowing one run on two hits while recording only one out. He'll serve as left-handed relief depth down the stretch.
