Player Notes
Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Friday that Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will "probably" begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday at Triple-A Tacoma.

Advice: Iwakuma had a successful simulated game Friday and will throw one more bullpen session Sunday before beginning a rehab assignment. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the right-hander will need, but his early May timetable still appears to be a realistic goal.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is on pace to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on April 23.

Advice: Iwakuma had a successful simulated game Friday and is scheduled for one more bullpen session Sunday before being cleared for game action. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the right-hander will need, but he remains on pact for an early May return.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will throw a simulated game on Friday.

Advice: The sim game was originally scheduled for Saturday, but it's been pushed up a day after Iwakuma went through a 51-pitch bullpen session Tuesday with no issues. "He's ready for a game," Mariners pitching coach Rick Waits said. Iwakuma is aiming for an early May return.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is scheduled to throw a 45-pitch simulated game Saturday in Miami.

Advice: Iwakuma, who is working his way back from a strained middle finger, threw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Saturday afternoon and is scheduled to throw another one Tuesday. If all goes well in the simulated game Saturday, the next step could be a minor league rehab assignment. It looks like a return in the early part of May is the most realistic scenario.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) tossed a 45-pitch bullpen session on Saturday afternoon.

Advice: Iwakuma did not throw his splitter during the workout but plans to incorporate that pitch in his next bullpen session on Tuesday. The Mariners are hoping he can join their starting rotation by the end of April. An early-May debut might be more realistic.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is scheduled to throw his second bullpen session on Saturday.

Advice: M's skipper Lloyd McClendon indicated that he'll need "a couple more bullpens" before beginning a minor league rehab assignment. He does appear to be making progress toward a return though, and could potentially rejoin the team before the end of April if all continues to go well.
