Hisashi Iwakuma and the Other Road to Elite

Hisashi Iwakuma is perhaps the most underrated pitcher in baseball. Since his debut in 2012, he has posted an xFIP of 3.24: good for 12th-best among qualified starters, and bracketed on either side by Max Scherzer and Madison Bumgarner.

Haven’t You Figured It Out Yet?  Iwakuma Is A Dominant Pitcher

8 Innings Each In First 3 Starts Says It All It’s simply amazing to me just how little people take notice of a pitcher like the Seattle Mariners‘ Hisashi Iwakuma.  It’s almost like if you can’t throw it 95 MPH and strike out at least a dozen per game, you can’t be considered a dominated pitcher. I’ve been accused of being “old school” when it comes to my baseball...
