Mariners | Will skip Taijuan Walker's next turn

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:49:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker will have his next turn skipped, as the club instead will have SP Hisashi Iwakuma start Tuesday, July 29. This will keep Iwakuma and the other starters on normal four days' rest.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's rotation spot may be tenuous as James Paxton (lat) nears a return and Erasmo Ramirez continues to impress.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma had stiff back

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:36:58 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (back) dealt with back stiffness before his start Sunday, June 15, but trainers stretched his muscles, and he wound up making the start anyway. Iwakuma allowed a run but still wound up beating the Texas Rangers. Iwakuma expects to receive treatment this week and make his next scheduled start against the Kansas City Royals Friday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma seems fine, especially after his masterful performance against the Rangers. Unless he suffers a setback during normal in-between-starts work, prepare to have him in your starting lineup for his next start against the weak-hitting Royals.
