The Seattle Mariners announced on Saturday morning that pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma will be out a month to a month-and-a-half. He’s dealing with right shoulder inflammation.
An MRI did not show any structural damage, but this is definitely a tough blow for the Mariners. This is going to be a tough stretch, because they do not have one of their best right-handed pitchers.
With Iwakuma out, Christian Bergman filled in for him on Friday night. Bergman picked up the loss, as the Mariners were defeated 4-0 by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Bergman went five innings and allowed three runs, including a home run.
With the Mariners injuries — and despite an 0-1 record with a 4.15 ERA in two games — Bergman could stick around in their rotation for a while.
Iwakuma is 0-2 this season with a 4.35 ERA. He has struck out 16 batters and walked 12 in 31 innings.
