Hisashi Iwakuma nursing a side injury
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma checked out "OK" after feeling something in his side Friday against the Angels, manager Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com Saturday. When asked if Iwakuma could pitch in five days, McClendon said, "I hope so."
Iwakuma picked up the win Friday night, limiting the Angels to two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings of a 4-3 victory. He finishes his 2014 regular season campaign with a 3.52 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 154:21 K:BB ratio over 179 innings.

|(9/27/14) Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma left Friday's game for precautionary reasons, according to the Everett Herald.
Iwakuma was able to get an out in the seventh inning, but was removed from the game at that point. He was visited by a trainer, and was replaced by Brandon Maurer. Iwakuma was checked out after the contest, and it was determined that he was alright. The team never specified an injury for Iwakuma.
Manager: Hisashi Iwakuma plagued by back, groin issues
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) 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|
|(9/22/14) 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."
Hisashi Iwakuma turns in another subpar start
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Hisashi Iwakuma entered Sunday's game against the Astros looking for his first quality start of September, and he left with his quest unfulfilled. Iwakuma lasted only 4 1/3 innings in the Mariners' 8-3 loss, as he coughed up four runs on six hits and three walks, though he did manage to strike out eight batters.
In his final regular season opportunity to break his slump, Iwakuma will face the Angels on Friday. He heads into that start with a 14-9 record and 3.54 ERA.
|Among pitchers, Hisashi Iwakuma's 2013 performance was one of the more surprising in Fantasy. Sure, he was a regular on Draft Day thanks to a 2.65 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 16 starts to end 2012, but few thought he'd actually sustain those numbers over a full season. Because he not only did, but improved upon them, actually challenging Felix Hernandez for the role of Mariners ace, he won more than a few of his owners the championship last year. He was at his best when it mattered most, pitching shutout baseball in four of his five September starts, including one against the Cardinals and one against the Tigers. Given that hitters never really caught up to him, you'd be hard-pressed to call his performance a fluke, but many will try, looking to pass him over for flashier types like Matt Moore or Francisco Liriano. And now that he's expected to miss the first few weeks of the season with a strained hand that will sideline him for almost all of spring training, their line of thinking is a bit more defensible. But ultimately, the injury figures to make Iwakuma even more of a bargain on Draft Day, potentially dropping him outside the top 25 at starting pitcher. When he's able to return in late April, he's a good bet to pick up where he left off.
