Player Notes
Hisashi Iwakuma was fantastic in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's, firing seven innings of four-hit, one-run ball.

Advice: Lovely work by Iwakuma, who struck out three and walked two. The strikeout total is modest enough, but the A's simply couldn't square the veteran right-hander up at any point. He did not allow an extra-base hit on the evening. The only run to score against him came in the sixth, when Jed Lowrie burned him for an RBI single. Otherwise, Iwakuma cruised. Through six starts (38 innings), he holds a 4.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 28/11 K/BB ratio. In his four major league seasons prior to 2016, Iwakuma never finished with an ERA higher than 3.54 (2015). He will hit the dusty trail for a road outing against the Astros next time out.

Hisashi Iwakuma fell to 0-3 after giving up five runs in five innings Wednesday against the Astros.

Advice: Iwakuma struck out seven, but he couldn't contain Jose Altuve, who had a homer and two doubles off him. He did pretty well against everyone else. After five starts, Iwakuma has a 4.65 ERA, but his 25/9 K/BB ratio is solid. It's not time to give up on him in mixed leagues just yet.
