8/12:Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) said his 25-pitch bullpen session Friday wasn't good because he struggled with his mechanics. Because of that, he's likely to have his simulated game pushed back next week. It's been a lost season for the right-hander, who last made a start May 3 against the Angels. The 36-year-old was struggling to a 4.35 ERA and 1.26 WHIP with a forgettable 4.6 K/9 to begin with, so he already wasn't very intriguing for fantasy owners and was basically just a matchup play in AL-only leagues. Iwakuma still has time to make it back before the end of the season, but there's no timetable for his return, and fantasy owners aren't waiting around for him.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
