Sikorski pitched the previous five seasons, 2001-05, in Japan where he was 21-20 w/a 3.51 ERA while striking out 382 and walking 116. Last year he appeared in a career-high 70 games for the Tokyo Giants going 7-1 w/a 3.29 ERA (87.2IP, 32ER). He will wear #44. He appeared in 10 games for the Texas Rangers in 2000 and was a 4th round pick by Houston in the 1995 draft out of Western Michigan.
