Hisashi Iwakuma to start for Mariners on Sunday

Hisashi Iwakuma will be with the Mariners on Friday when they travel to Houston, but he will not make his first 2014 start until Sunday afternoon.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Iwakuma will be the starting pitcher for the 2:10 PM EST start against the Houston Astros on Sunday. He will follow King Felix Hernandez and either Brandon Maurer or Chris Young to pitch the Friday game.

Iwakuma has been on the disabled list since the start of the season after straining a tendon in his pitching hand during Spring Training.
