One of baseball's best kept secrets is Hisashi Iwakuma. If he was on the Yankees, Red Sox, or Phillies we'd hear a lot more about his dominance. Instead, he's stuck in Seattle, where the weather is dreary and the team is mediocre.
Since coming over from Japan in 2012, Iwakuma has pitched brilliantly, especially in the role of starting pitcher. The 32 year old righty has made 25 starts over the past 2 seasons with the Mariners and owns a 13-5 record covering 153.2 IP with a 2.34 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. Those are the type of stats that will put him in elite status should he continue churning out this high level of quality.
