Player Notes
Hisashi Iwakuma served up six runs to the Diamondbacks in 5 2/3 innings, leaving with a loss on Tuesday.

Advice: Iwakuma was on a roll entering Tuesday's outing, with three quality outings in a row. But the D'Backs weren't impressed, pounding out 10 hits against the right-hander. He also walked one and struck out five as he watched his ERA balloon to 5.10. Iwakuma will try to right his ship when he takes the mound against the Twins in Minnesota.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mariners have heard from "several teams" interested in Hisashi Iwakuma.

Advice: However, Morosi adds that Seattle "still hasn't committed firmly to trading him." The Mariners are, at best, on the fringe of the Wild Card race and Iwakuma is a free agent after this season, but it doesn't appear they're ready to give up yet. Iwakuma has been limited to just seven starts this season due to injury but has been really good the last three times out, allowing a total of just four runs.

Hisashi Iwakuma earned a strong no-decision in Thursday afternoon's contest with the Tigers, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings.

Advice: Iwakuma and David Price were locked in a fun little pitcher's duel on Thursday. For most of the game, Price held a 2-1 advantage, but the M's managed to tie things up with a Mark Trumbo single in the seventh. They would go on to win in 12 innings, though Iwakuma was long gone by that point. For his part, the pitcher allowed a two-run double to Victor Martinez in the first inning before settling down to shutout the Tigers over the next six innings. He struck out seven and walked two on the day. After missing over two months with a strained lat muscle, the Japanese import finally appears to be rounding into form and should be seriously considered for deeper mixed-league formats. Overall, he's the owner of a 4.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 42 innings. He's never posted an ERA higher than 3.52 in his career. He'll try to keep his good roll going in a home start against the Diamondbacks next time he toes the rubber.
