Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Turns in best outing of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma allowed one unearned run on three hits and a walk while striking out three batters during Thursday's win over Detroit. He did not factor into the decision.

The veteran entered with an underwhelming 5.31 ERA and 7.77 FIP through his first four starts of the season, so this was a welcomed bounce-back outing. Still, Iwakuma has shown statistical regression in three consecutive seasons, and it hasn't been a great start to 2017. He'll look to build on Thursday's showing against the Angels in his next start.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Experiences control issues in Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma (0-2) gave up three earned runs on five hits and four walks over 5.1 innings in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Athletics. He struck out three.

Iwakuma seemed to get progressively worse as spring training wound down, giving up 10 earned runs over three of his last four exhibition starts. Many of those problems have now crept into the regular season, with Friday's outing being the latest example. Although the veteran right-hander wasn't shelled by any means, he did surrender a pair of home runs to Trevor Plouffe and Yonder Alonso in back-to-back innings, while throwing 84 pitches, only 44 of which found the strike zone. Iwakuma also issued multiple free passes for the third time in four trips to the mound this season, and has now yielded nine earned runs on 12 hits -- including three homers -- and four walks over the 8.1 innings encompassing his last two starts. He'll look to straighten things out in a Wednesday road start versus the Tigers.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Allows six runs to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma (0-1) allowed six runs on seven hits while striking out two batters over three innings during Sunday's win over Texas.

This was a rough outing, and with Iwakuma's fastball velocity hovering in the mid-80s, his smoke-and-mirrors pitch arsenal is unlikely to hold up against capable offenses. The 36-year-old righty has seen his velocity decline steadily since joining Seattle in 2012, but this season's drop is significant. His ERA and FIP have also climbed in consecutive seasons. Iwakuma is probably crafty enough to turn in a number of good starts, but expect plenty of short outings, too.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Another quality start but no win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma allowed just one run on two hits while walking three and striking out two in six innings for a no-decision in a 10-9 loss to the Angels on Sunday.

The right-hander has now given up only three runs in 12 innings over two starts to begin the season. However, the 36-year-old isn't blowing hitters away with only four strikeouts in that span. Iwakuma can be useful in deeper leagues, but injury risk and lack of upside make him unattractive to those in shallow formats.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Loses despite quality start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma (0-1) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks across six innings during Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Astros. He struck out two.

Iwakuma threw 64 percent of his pitches for strikes and did well to scatter baserunners, but the solo home runs he allowed in the third and sixth innings doomed him to a loss as Lance McCullers sparkled on the other side. His efficiency was a positive sign in his first start of the season, but Iwakuma will look to cut down on the free passes and long balls in his next start Sunday against the Angels.
