The latest on Hisashi Iwakuma, from MLB.com's Greg Johns:
All-Star right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma threw 58 pitches in a four-inning simulated game against Mariners teammates on Tuesday afternoon, moving a step closer to rejoining Seattle's rotation.
... Iwakuma said he felt much sharper than in his first simulated outing last Friday in Miami, and there's a chance he could be ready to join the Mariners after a rehab start in Las Vegas this Sunday for Tacoma.
If all goes well, he could be in line to return at some point during Seattle's nine-day, 10-game trek to New York, Houston and Oakland from April 29-May 7.
Manager Lloyd McClendon said Iwakuma will throw about 75 pitches in the Las Vegas outing, but continued to stress caution as the Japanese standout builds his arm strength up after missing all of Spring Training with a sprained tendon in his right middle finger.
... Iwakuma looked strong pitching to Stefen Romero, Willie Bloomquist, Nick Franklin and Logan Morrison as he worked all his pitches, including his trademark splitter and what pitching coach Rick Waits said was a surprisingly sharp curveball.
