Mariners’ Hisashi Iwakuma Set For Season Debut

The Seattle Mariners have announced that starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma will be activated from the disabled list and make his season debut on Saturday against the Houston Astros.

Iwakuma has been sidelined since early in spring training due to a finger injury.

A 33-year-old right-hander, Iwakuma was one of the American League’s best starting pitchers last season when he went 14-6 with a 2.66 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 185 strikeouts in 220 innings pitched in 33 starts for the Mariners.
