Stephania Bell: Iwakuma is dealing with a strained tendon that will push his throwing program back by more than a month. He'll likely open the season on the DL but, if all goes well, he could return sometime in April.
Addendum (3/12): Once doctors made the decision for Iwakuma to remain in a splint a few weeks longer, it became clear he would start the season on the DL as he'll need additional time to build up his arm strength. While there’s no set timetable, fantasy owners shouldn't count on him before the middle of April at the earliest. ","seasonId":2014,"date":"Thu Mar 13"}}
