Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma to begin in long relief

Seattle Mariners P Hisashi Iwakuma is beginning the 2012 season in the bullpen, where he will pitch long relief. It was a move that caught many by surprise, but manager Eric Wedge said the team thinks the bullpen is the best place for him to begin his major-league career. "He is going to serve as our long guy, as well as middle relief and, quite frankly, I think that's the best way to transition him this year," the manager said.
