Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma out 4-6 weeks

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will be sidelined four to six weeks because of a finger injury. He is expected to rejoin the starting rotation during the early part of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma's fantasy value probably will not be affected much because he is expected to miss only a few starts. Erasmo Ramirez and Brandon Maurer could be options to be in the starting rotation while Iwakuma is out. Ramirez could be an option in deeper mixed leagues if he is in the starting rotation, while Maurer likely would only be an option in AL-only leagues.
