Hisashi Iwakuma News & Advice

Fangraphs | Jul 18th, 2:34am
Iwakuma doesn't pick off a lot of runners. He doesn't induce a lot of double plays. His batted ball profile is ordinary. His team's defense has been bad. There is no obvious reason he has so much success with runners on base, but he does. And now that he has continued that success into this third season, I believe he has earned our trust that it will continue. The strikeout ceiling holds him out of my top 10 starters, but he is in my top 15. - Scott Spratt
