Kickham sent to the bullpen 

CINCINNATI — Left-hander Mike Kickham will pitch out of the Giants' bullpen for now.

San Francisco moved the rookie out of the rotation on Tuesday, a day after he had another rough outing. Kickham lasted only 2²⁄³ innings in an 8-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, allowing seven runs.

Manager Bruce Bochy was noncommittal about which player would give up a roster spot when Chad Gaudin returns from his bruised right elbow. He's eligible to come off the disabled list on Saturday.
