Hisashi Iwakuma to miss rest of year

Hisashi Iwakuma, who has been trying to recover from a sore shoulder since May, will most likely not pitch again this year.

Fantasy Impact

Iwakuma has suffered repeated setbacks in his attempt to recover from a sore shoulder that placed him on the disabled list after a May 3 start against the Angels in Seattle. The 36-year-old right-hander was 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA in six starts this season before his injury. “He had a tremendous season last year,” manager Scott Servais said. “Unfortunately, things happen, and he just couldn’t get over the hump with the injury. He has worked his tail off. Nobody has worked harder. He’s tried everything he could to get back. It’s just not happening.” Iwakuma's tenure with Seattle is probably over. The Mariners are expected to exercise a one-million dollar buyout clause, which will make him a free agent.

Hisashi Iwakuma tabbed for extended bullpen session

Hisashi Iwakuma is expected to partake in an extended bullpen session on Friday. Iwakuma has been on the shelf since May 3 because of inflammation in his pitching shoulder.

Fantasy Impact

The 35-year-old right-hander has already thrown three light bullpen sessions. Manager Scott Servais indicated that Friday's workout should provide a more definitive test. Iwakuma (0-2) struggled before the injury, as evidenced by his lackluster 4.35 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 31 innings, and his even more ghastly 4.6 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, and 2.0 HR/9. The veteran would need at least three rehab starts, which would likely push his timetable to return into September.

Hisashi Iwakuma shut down after setback

Hisashi Iwakuma experienced discomfort in his shoulder following a bullpen session and has been shut down. He's out indefinitely at this point.

Fantasy Impact

Iwakuma was a fantasy relevant pitcher, but he's lost velocity and effectiveness of late. He entered the DL with an ERA and WHIP of 4.35 and 1.26. Considering the setback, he's safe to drop in most formats.

No timetable for a third rehab start for Hisashi Iwakuma

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Sunday there's no time table for a third rehab start for Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Impact

After Iwakuma got roughed up in his last outing, the Mariners are giving him some extra time to feel better and get a good feel for where the ball is coming out. Iwakuma has been out since May 3rd.

Hisashi Iwakuma likely to return June 24th or 25th

Hisashi Iwakuma will make one more rehab start June 19th and will more than likely return to the Mariners rotation against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

This is really good news for the Mariners as they have been hurting without Iwakuma and Hernandez in their starting rotation. Iwakuma may not be a automatic start every time he pitches, but against the right matchup he could get you some wins and strike outs if you're in need.
