Hisashi Iwakuma will start Saturday for Mariners in Houston.
And the word is official. Iwakuma looked solid in his rehab starts and had no issues gripping the ball. You'll want to get him active for this start,for sure. In four starts against Houston last season, Iwakuma had a 1.38 ERA with a 33:7 K:BB over 26 innings.ANALYST: Howard Bender
