Hisashi Iwakuma rocked by Rangers

Hisashi Iwakuma surrendered six runs on seven hits in three innings Sunday against the Rangers. He didn't issue a walk and struck out two batters.

Fantasy Impact

Iwakuma avoided damage in his first two starts despite shaky peripherals, but that wasn't the case Sunday. The veteran has lost velocity and is becoming more of a fringe fantasy SP rather than the consistent presence he was earlier in his career with the Mariners.

Hisashi Iwakuma dominant in win

Hisashi Iwakuma had a tough task facing the heavy-hitting Red Sox, but he turned in a big time start. He went 7 1/3 innings allowing just five hits, no runs, no walks, and striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Iwakuma has really been pitching well as of late and this may have been his best start of the season. The Red Sox could not solve him all night and his control was pinpoint. Iwakuma is a great option in fantasy leagues for the rest of the season.
