Seattle Mariners

The latest on Hisashi Iwakuma, from MLB.com's Greg Johns:

Though the Mariners haven't made anything official yet because he's still on the 15-day disabled list, All-Star right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma will make his regular-season debut on Saturday against the Astros during Seattle's three-game set at Minute Maid Park.

... Iwakuma will slot in behind Felix Hernandez, who'll pitch the opening game of the Houston series after having his Thursday start against the Yankees pushed back by a Wednesday rainout in New York.

Manager Lloyd McClendon said he considered starting Hernandez on Thursday, given his outstanding history against the Yankees. McClendon instead kept the rotation in order, with rookie Roenis Elias getting the nod in the series finale in the Bronx after his Wednesday start was postponed.
