Mariners place Hisashi Iwakuma on 15-day DL due to lat strain
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a right lat strain. General manager Jack Zduriencik said he hopes Iwakuma's injury is just shoulder fatigue, but the team will know more after an MRI on Friday.

Iwakuma was scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Twins, but the team has yet to name a replacement. Although, Zduriencik indicated Friday it would likely be Roenis Elias.

The veteran right-hander has struggled through his first three starts, going 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. He has allowed five home runs and three walks, while recording 11 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings.

McClendon criticizes command of Mariners RHP Iwakuma
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma continues to limit his walks this season, just as he has done since arriving in Seattle. He has just three in 16 innings pitched.

But his command in the strike zone has been a problem and has translated into three poor starts and 6.61 ERA. He walked none Monday night against Houston, but still allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings, prompting criticism from Lloyd McClendon.

"I didn't like what I saw; it has to get better than that," McClendon told MLB Network Radio about the command of his right-hander.

Two of the five hits Iwakuma allowed to Houston left the yard. He has yielded five homers in 16 1/3 innings on the year.

Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma gives up four runs Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma failed to get past the fifth inning of Monday's loss to the Astros and received a no-decision as a result.

Iwakuma surrendered four runs on five hits over 5 1/2 innings. He struck out three and walked three on 71 pitches. He has given up four runs in each of his three starts this season.

"He has not been sharp," manager Lloyd McClendon said after the game, per MLB.com. "The ball was up again tonight. We've got to figure out a way to get him down in the zone. His fastball command has just not been good as of late."

Iwakuma's troubles began in the first inning when he gave up a solo home run to Luis Valbuena. He also surrendered a solo shot to Colby Rasmus in the fifth inning and his ERA is now 6.61. Felix Hernandez remains the only Mariners starter with a win this season.

"I actually feel pretty good on the mound," Iwakuma said through translator Antony Suzuki. "Even today, I felt like my stuff was working. Just some of the pitches that were up in the zone, they didn't miss, and that kind of hurt."

Iwakuma's next expected start will be Sunday against the Twins.

Can Mariners' Iwakuma reverse course against Astros in 2015?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma is set to face the Astros for the first time this season Monday. However, he didn't fare very well against the AL West foe in 2014.

The right-hander went 2-3 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in five starts against Houston last season. He allowed four runs in four of the five starts.

It was a stark contrast from 2013, when Iwakuma went 2-1 with a 1.38 ERA in four starts against Houston and didn't allow more than two earned runs in any of those outings.

The Astros enter play Monday with 34 runs, which is the third-lowest total in the majors.
