HISASHI IWAKUMA RUMORS

Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma shut down at least 10 days

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. The former of that duo just signed a well-publicized seven-year, $210 million dollar contract; Iwakuma is on […]

Seattle Mariners: Predicting the rotation after King Felix

No 2 starter: Hisashi Iwakuma RHP Mariners All-Star Hisashi Iwakuma Over the past two years Iwakuma has been one of the most underrated players in the MLB. He made a splash in the 2013 season, finishing 3rd in the Cy Young voting. He had injury problems at the beginning of the 2014 season, but bounced back by posting 15 wins with a 3.52 ERA. He is not a flamethrower; his fastball...

Seattle Mariners rumors: Trading Hisashi Iwakuma?

First thing’s first: happy birthday to Ken Griffey, Jr. Today the Kid turns 45 years old. And now to address another Mariners rumor: the possible trading of starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma.

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...

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma throws 55-pitches, near rehab assignment

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation picture muddled

Let’s Get Creative: What The Seattle Mariners Should Do

People will think I’m crazy when the read this next sentence, and most will disagree. The Mariners should trade starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma. There, I said it. This has been, in my opinion, my best trade idea. Sure, Iwakuma was incredible last season. But now, lets delve into this idea and the madness behind it all. First and foremost, Iwakuma is 32. By the idea of a players...
