Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Will miss some time in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma will likely be sidelined until May or early June while he continues to recover from shoulder surgery, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Iwakuma recently signed a minor-league contract with Seattle earlier this week, and although it came with an invite to spring training, the soon-to-be 36-year-old may not be ready to begin throwing at that time. There will be an update on his status as the season nears, while the club hopes that he will be able to contribute in the second half of the year.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Inks minor-league deal with Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma (shoulder) has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Mariners that includes an invitation to spring training.

It turns out Iwakuma will return to Seattle despite the team declining his $10 million club option at the end of the season. The 36-year-old made just six starts last year -- going 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA and 16:12 K:BB across 31 innings -- before undergoing arthroscopic surgery near the end of September to clean up some structural damage in his throwing arm. It's still unclear if Iwakuma will be ready for the start of the season, as he isn't expected to resume throwing until the end of February, barring any setbacks. The right-hander went 16-12 with a 4.12 ERA and 147:46 K:BB in 33 starts (199 innings) in 2016.

Hisashi Iwakuma: Mariners decline option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seattle (shoulder) declined Iwakuma's $10 million club option for the 2018 season, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Iwakuma is officially a free agent at this point in time, although it remains a decent possibility that the club will bring him back on a minor-league contact for next year. The 36-year-old was only able to make six starts this past year, and underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery near the end of September to clean up some of the structural damage in his throwing arm. It remains to be seen whether Iwakuma will be ready at the start of the season, since he likely won't be able to resume throwing until the end of February, barring any further setbacks.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Undergoes arthroscopic shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iwakuma underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Friday and will resume throwing in five months.

That timetable would have Iwakuma beginning his rehabilitation right around the start of spring training. As such, it isn't guaranteed that the 36-year-old will be healthy and ready to go by the start of next season. Seattle has a $10 million option on the starter, but given Iwakuma's age and declining performance over the past two seasons, he may be on his way to free agency.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Formally shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Tuesday that Iwakuma (shoulder) won't pitch again in 2017, Josh Horton of MLB.com reports.

The veteran has been sidelined since early May with inflammation in his right shoulder and held out hope that he'd be able to return at some point in September, but with multiple setbacks derailing him along the way and Iwakuma having not progressed past throwing a simulated game, it was no longer feasible for him to rejoin the team with 11 contests remaining on the schedule. Since the shoulder has been a recurring issue for him in recent seasons, Iwakuma plans to weigh treatment options this offseason, with surgery seemingly a possibility. Iwakuma, who will turn 36 in December, seems likely to have his $10 million club option declined this winter.
