Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma to fast track back?

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Tuesday, April 8, that he anticipates SP Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will make rapid progress once he begins to face hitters. He might be able to return to the rotation as soon as the end of the month. "If you look at Kuma's history, "he's been able to go through lineups, go through seven innings, with a fair amount of pitches. He's a strike-thrower."

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma appears to be well on target to return when expected, but fantasy owners should wait for him to make it through a start or two without any setbacks before leaning upon him too heavily.
