|(3/28/15) Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma gave up four earned runs on five hits in five innings of work Saturday against the Giants. Iwakuma added four strikeouts and two walks on 85 pitches.

|(3/24/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon was impressed with the day-after reports on Hisashi Iwakuma, according to the Tacoma News Tribune on Tuesday.
"Outstanding," McClendon said. "He threw the ball extremely well. Great command of the split. The fastball was in and out, up and down. He really commanded the zone very well."
Iwakuma allowed two runs on six hits over five innings of work against minor-league hitters. he struck out eight and walked one. Of his 72 pitches, 44 were called strikes.
"I had a good feel with the split," Iwakuma said. "It is starting to dive a lot. I feel like I could start the season right now physically. It's just all mental from here out."
Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma tosses four scoreless innings

|(3/17/15) Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma delivered four scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-5 tie against the White Sox, allowing five hits and no walks while striking out two.
"I'm not 100 percent there yet, but I feel like I'm close to getting there," Iwakuma said through a translator after the outing, per the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "I'm in game mode now. It will pick up another notch."
Iwakuma indicated he felt strong at the end of his start, and manager Lloyd McClendon said that his command "got better as the game went along. He threw a lot of very good two-strike strikes. He did a nice job."
Iwakuma has thrown just twice in Cactus League action this spring, as he was tabbed to work in a simulated game during his last turn.
Mariners' Iwakuma throws 60 pitches during simulated game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma threw 60 pitches in four innings during a simulated game against minor leaguers Thursday, per The News Tribune.
“I felt good overall today,” he said, “and had a better feel of my command, being able to locate where I wanted to. I was able to work from my stretch with runners on and that was good to get that feel back.
“I felt like my arm speed and arm action were better than my first outing, so I am satisfied with where I am at being the second game in camp.”
Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma to pitch simulated game Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/10/15) Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma will pitch in a simulated game against minor leaguers Thursday rather than in Cactus League play, MLB.com reports.
Iwakuma would have faced the A's Thursday, but with the team set to travel to Oakland during its first road trip of the season, manager Lloyd McClendon wanted to avoid giving hitters extra work against the pitcher. Felix Hernandez is set to pitch a simulated game for the same reason Sunday.
"I just don’t want them facing teams we’re going to play early," McClendon said. "I don’t like doing that. Any type of edge we can get by not having them face them early is good. They just need to build up [innings]. I don’t think they’re trying to make the club."
Iwakuma tossed two perfect innings in his Cactus League debut Saturday, throwing 16 of his 22 pitches for strikes.
|2014 summary: Though he missed the first month for the Mariners with a torn tendon in his right middle finger, Hisashi Iwakuma managed to pick up where he left off the year before, dominating with a 2.57 ERA and 0.95 WHIP for his first 21 starts in 2014. And then a strange thing happened: He suddenly couldn't get anyone out, costing Fantasy owners at the most critical time of year with a 9.12 ERA and 1.75 WHIP for a six-start stretch in August and September.|
Playing time status: Iwakuma managed to right the ship in his final start, which won't completely spare us the debate about him "losing it" at age 34, but because he was plagued by back, groin and side injuries down the stretch, health likely played a bigger role in his struggles. After all, it's not like his velocity disappeared during that rough patch.
2015 outlook: Iwakuma is as efficient as they come and, for having less than electric stuff, is still enough of a bat-misser to rank among the best starting pitchers in per-game production. Innings have a good bit to do with that as well, which often translates to victories on a contending team. Iwakuma has enough trouble spots that you wouldn't want to draft him as more than your second or third starting pitcher, but it wouldn't be the biggest upset if he performed like a No. 1.
