Two days after losing Zack Greinke to the Diamondbacks, the Dodgers appear to have added an arm to their rotation.
According to CBS Sports, Hisashi Iwakuma has agreed to a deal with the Dodgers. The pact is "believed to be for three years."
The 34-year-old spent the last four seasons with the Mariners after coming over to the major leagues from Japan.
In his major league career, Iwakuma is 47-25 with a 3.17 ERA and 551 strikeouts in 653.2 innings pitched.
Iwakuma is coming off his worst statistical season, though he dealt with a right lat strain that cost him at least a dozen starts. In 20 starts in 2015, he posted a 3.54 ERA in just 129.2 innings. He did throw a no-hitter against the Orioles on August 12.
If the two sides make the deal official, the Dodgers will surrender a first-round pick due to Iwakuma being offered and declining the Mariners' qualifying offer.
Iwakuma would join a Dodgers' rotation that features Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson, Alex Wood and Mike Bolsinger.
