— Player Notes
Advice: Iwakuma noted that he's had numerous blister problems over the years and that the Mariners' training staff knows how to treat them. It remains to be seen whether the M's share his opinion, but either way this isn't a big setbacks. Iwakuma could rejoin Seattle's rotation as soon as Sunday.Rotoworld
Advice: He pitched well before exiting, allowing just one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six. Iwakuma's splitter has often given him blister issues, but it's unclear at this point if this is a notable setback. Tuesday's rehab start likely was going to be his last, although the Mariners hadn't confirmed as much. More should be known about Iwakuma on Wednesday.

Advice: If all goes well after that outing, there's a chance that the M's could reinsert him into the starting rotation. Iwakuma has been sidelined since April 21 due to a strained lat.

Advice: Iwakuma allowed one run over 3 2/3 innings in his first rehab start with Low-A Everett on Saturday. The M's want him to get his pitch count up to 100 before he's activated and McClendon also said he'd like to see a little more velocity. Iwakuma has been on the shelf since April 21 with the strained lat.
