Player Notes
Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) has developed a blister on the inside of his right middle finger from throwing his splitter.

Advice: He's had blister issues in the past and doesn't think it's that bad this time around. The good news is that Iwakuma said the "ball jumped out of my hand" during a simulated game Tuesday and that he feels "pretty close now." The righty will begin a rehab assignment over the weekend and is on track for an early May return.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is throwing another simulated game Tuesday rather than beginning a rehab assignment due to inclement weather at Triple-A Tacoma.

Advice: It's not a big deal and should not be considered a setback. Iwakuma's fastball Tuesday was clocked in the 89-90 mph range, which is his normal velocity. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the righty will need, but his early May timetable still appears to be a realistic goal.

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) 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.
