Yusei Kikuchi free to negotiate with MLB teams

TOKYO—The Seibu Lions have agreed to post pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, clearing the way for the left-hander to negotiate with teams in Major League Baseball.

Since Kikuchi, 27, cannot file for international free agency until 2020, he needed Seibu’s approval in order to use the posting system to move to the majors.

Kikuchi has a 73-46 career record with a 2.77 ERA in Nippon Professional Baseball. He went 14-4 this year and struck out 153 batters in 163⅔ innings.

Interesting to watch, both in terms of how this posting goes and how he turns out.
