Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma remains hot

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:41:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma won for the fourth time in five starts as the Mariners beat the Chicago White Sox, 7-6, on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) improved to 6-3 overall with the victory. He has been more effective on the road (2-0, 2.97) but this win came at Safeco Field. All this still adds up to a pitcher you should start as long as he is 4-1 in his last five decisions.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma hitting his stride

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:50:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma is 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA with 21 strikeouts and just four walks in his last three starts after throwing a no-hitter in his last outing. He is 4-2 with a 3.86 ERA overall this year. However, he threw a career-high 118 pitches on Aug. 7 and followed that up with 116 pitches in his no-hitter. Manager Lloyd McClendon isn't worried about Iwakuma physically, but he said Iwakuma will need to be efficient to pitch deep into the game with temperatures expected to be in the upper 90s for his start Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) may be a hot commodity in daily leagues following his no-no last week. The high temperatures and heavy pitch counts of late should make you hesitant to start him against the Rangers tonight, though.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma throws no-hitter Wednesday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 15:12:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma threw a no-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Aug. 12. The right-hander walked three and struck out seven in the outing while throwing 77 of his 116 pitches for strikes. With the effort, he dropped his ERA on the year to 3.86.

Fantasy Tip: Before Wednesday, Iwakuma ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) had given up just four runs in his last two starts over 15 2/3 innings, so he's certainly been pitching well of late. He could just now be rounding into form after dealing with an injury earlier in the year. It's safe to say he should be owned in all formats.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma not going anywhere

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:24:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma doesn't appear to be on the trade block for the Mariners at the deadline, and Seattle is telling other teams that they want to keep him.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is more of a finesse and ground-ball pitcher than a strikeout arm, and he's sporting a 5.10 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in eight starts (47 2/3 innings) this year. He's much more attractive to FantasyScore users when he starts at Safeco Field.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:06:21 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is tentatively set to take the ball Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but FantasyScore players will want to be very careful to make sure he is not a late scratch.

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:33:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma allowed five hits, two runs and zero walks Saturday, July 18, against the New York Yankees. Iwakuma struck out five hitters in his third start since returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has posted back-to-back strong outings after getting roughed up in his first game back. Iwakuma will be a risky play in his next start Thursday, July 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma has strong Saturday

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 04:33:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma was strong in his second start since returning from a lat injury. Iwakuma gave up three hits and two walks and struck out six in a 5-0 shutout of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Saturday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has rebounded nicely from his long stint on the disabled list and may be over the hump in his recovery process. To shut down a lineup that includes the likes of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols is pretty impressive. Take the reins off of Iwakuma and play him in FantasyScore.

Mariners | Teams interested in Hisashi Iwakuma

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 18:51:31 -0700

Scouts from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Toronto Blue Jays and Washington Nationals were on hand to watch Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma during his start against the Detroit Tigers Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was making his first start after being activated from the disabled list and he allowed four home runs. He is 0-4 with a 7.17 ERA through four starts this season and is a very risky play in FantasyScore for his next start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, July 11.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma with no limits

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 08:39:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma won't have any restrictions in his start Monday, July 6, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has a so-so matchup, but the Tigers are without Miguel Cabrera (calf). Kuma's price isn't too shabby if you're comfortable with the matchup on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma set to return

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 19:07:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list and start against the Detroit Tigers Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) hasnít pitched since April 24, and considering he wasn't pitching well prior to his injury, you can definitely afford to take a wait-and-see approach with him at FantasyScore.
