Analysis: Iwakuma had a contract option for the 2018 season, but needed to pitch a specific amount of innings for the contract to vest. His injury ended that chance and he is expected to be a free agent after the season. The 36-year-old Iwakuma had a frustrating injury-filled 2017 season. He made just six starts and was 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA. He landed on the disabled list on May 10 with shoulder troubles and never made it back to the roster.

Analysis: Iwakuma hasn't pitched in a major league game since May 3 and endured a number of setbacks in his rehab. A free agent this offseason, the 36-year-old could find a cold market for his services during the winter.
