Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma light tosses

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:08:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) threw lightly Friday, May 1. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Iwakuma is still three to four weeks from returning.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, however, he started poorly, and expecting him to return his previous numbers may be unwise. He appears more of a end-of-the-rotation fantasy option than the No. 2 he was in 2013. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and recovery timeline.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma out 2-4 weeks

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 17:43:11 -0700

Updating a previous story, Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of his right lat Saturday, April 25, and he is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has lasted only 16.1 innings pitched across three starts this season. Iwakuma has one loss on the season and an inflated 6.61 ERA. A 27.8% home run to fly ball ratio can take a large portion of the blame for Iwakuma's poor start, and owners should keep him stashed.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma to the DL

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 18:41:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain Friday, April 24, and recalled RP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: With Iwakuma on the shelf, Roenis Elias would seem like the most logical choice to take his spot in the rotation. Elias finished with a 3.85 ERA last year, and if he is recalled, he could be worth a look at FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma off to rough start

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 23:36:20 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP after his first three starts of the season.

Fantasy Tip: He has allowed four earned runs in each start and served up five homers in 16 1/3 innings. He's slated for a good matchup against the Minnesota Twins in his next start, but at $6,300 (12.6% of your cap), we aren't too comfortable using him on FantasyScore yet.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma dealing with blister

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 16:38:01 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is dealing with a little blister on his finger that kept him from throwing as many splitters Saturday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: The team downplayed it, but it's something to monitor as the regular season nears. Iwakuma is well worth his $7,000 (14.0% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore if it dissipates.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma not pitching Thursday

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 13:34:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma will not take his originally scheduled spring turn on the mound Thursday, March 12, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: This move is strictly so Iwakuma will not see the in-division Oakland Athletics. Iwakuma is healthy and is a strong selection in the middle of AL and mixed drafts.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma healthy this year

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:21:51 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma is healthy this year in spring training and is excited about what he can accomplish in 2015. He threw 45 pitches during a bullpen session Monday, Feb. 23, that saw him mix in fastballs and breaking pitches. Last year at this time he had a splint on his finger and was simulating throwing as a spectator for roughly six weeks. Iwakuma never got into his comfort zone last year after starting on the disabled list, even though he finished 15-9 with a 3.52 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: If Iwakuma's 2014 season was considered a down year, we should all be excited for what's in store this year as he enters fully healthy. He finds himself ranked just behind the high-upside strikeout pitchers, but he'll be valuable to your staff as a No. 2 or 3 starter.
