News: Iwakuma was knocked around for a career-high seven runs on six hits with two walks and four strikeouts over 3.1 innings Monday in a loss to the Angels. Impact: The woes continue for Iwakuma, who has coughed up 14 runs in 13 September innings (9.69 ERA) over three starts. Iwakuma has admitted to feeling out of sync, so it might be wise to sit him until he gets things straightened out. He will try to rebound Saturday in Houston.(RotoWire, )

News: Iwakuma tossed 5.1 innings versus the Rangers on Friday night, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and a walk while picking up five strikeouts on the way to his 14th win of the season. Impact: Iwakuma hasn't been close to top form lately, as the crafty right-hander has struggled to a 7.24 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over his last three starts. Despite the lackluster performance, he has managed to go 2-0 while registering a dozen strikeouts across 13.2 innings during the same short stretch. Iwakuma's slump, to some extent, can be attributed to an unfortunate .349 BABIP. The 33-year-old hurler will look to get back on track Wednesday versus the Astros.(RotoWire, )
