Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Could resume throwing this weekend

Iwakuma (shoulder) could begin playing catch this weekend, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports.

The veteran right-hander is sidelined with right shoulder inflammation, but it's apparently subsiding to the point where a return to light throwing appears imminent. Iwakuma's recovery timetable still points to a mid-June return at the earliest.
