Hisashi Iwakuma will be with the Seattle Mariners next season, the American League club’s general manager said Sunday.

The 33-year-old right-hander, who did not throw his first pitch until May 3 due to an offseason injury, finished with a 15-9 record and a 3.52 earned run average. Prior to the 2013 season, Iwakuma signed a two-year deal with a clause that includes a third should he work 350 or more innings over two seasons.
