Mariners pick up option on Hisashi Iwakuma
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Mariners have picked up an option on pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma, according to 710 ESPN.

It's actually unclear if the club picked up the option or if Iwakuma reached enough benchmarks during the year for the option to automatically vest. Either way, he'll return to Seattle for $7 million next season. Iwakuma was fantastic in 2014, posting a 3.52 ERA over 179 innings.

Manager: Hisashi Iwakuma plagued by back, groin issues
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lloyd McClendon has revealed that Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma is dealing with slight back and groin ailments, which could explain his recent control problems, per mynorthwest.com.

Iwakuma, who has walked seven in his last 12 innings and has yielded 26 earned runs in his last 25 1/3 innings pitched, recently claimed that he has no physical issues. He is slated to make his last regular season start Friday night in a critical clash against the Angels.

Hisashi Iwakuma blames 'bad balance'
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Coming off a stretch of six straight shaky starts during which he has compiled a 9.12 ERA, Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma blamed his struggles on mechanics, according to the Seattle Times -- specifically, not landing properly on his plant leg.

"I'm physically healthy," Iwakuma said through interpreter Antony Suzuki. "There's no issue with that. This late in the season, we're all tired and feel fatigued at times, so we're trying to overcome that. But like I said the other day in Anaheim, it's more the balance for myself. I'm still kind of working on making my adjustments because of my bad balance. I'm not able to get ahead early in the count and that's kind of messing up my game plan."

Manager Lloyd McClendon is getting frustrated with Iwakuma's performance with the team fighting to make the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

"I'm not sure," McClendon said. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. He had six days' rest. I thought he'd be a lot sharper today."
