On paper Iwakuma seems like a really good pitcher. In reality he was really dissappointing. He couldn't make it out of the 9th inning (hit three batters in a row), leaving the game with 8.1 IP. His late inning performance is poor even though he has 81 control and 77 stamina. However, Iwakuma has high strikeout potential. It is very easy to get ahead on a two stike count against the batter, but getting strike three is kinda tough. If you want to chase strike out achievements, Iwakuma might be worth a look, but don't expect him to pitch a complete game.
