Mariners Iwakuma easing into life with Mariners

Quote:
Hisashi Iwakuma has taken a long road to the Major Leagues, so it's understandable that the Japanese ace was willing to take things slowly as he jumped into his first action with the Mariners on Sunday when pitchers and catchers took the field for the first time.

Iwakuma, 30, had hoped to pitch in the Majors last year, but couldn't work out a deal with the A's after they made the high bid of $19 million in the posting process with his Rakuten team in Japan. Instead, he returned to Rakuten and then signed with Seattle after becoming a free agent this offseason.

The Mariners are looking at the 6-foot-3 right-hander as one of their rotation candidates, but he'll need to prove healthy after arm problems limited him to 17 starts last year in Japan.

they also have trouble with John Jaso at catcher. John is slated to be the #2 Catcher for the Mariners, but he is know for giving up a lot of stolen bases. So its Hisashi Iwakuma's first year to throw the big ball, after a year of arm problems; and Jaso letting them steal 2nd.

Iwakuma struggles in intrasquad action

Japanese right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma gave up three hits and three runs along with two walks in a rough second inning of his Mariners debut Tuesday in an intrasquad game at the Peoria Sports Complex, with his work halted with the bases loaded and no outs after he reached his pitch limit.
