Angels, 3 Others Scouted Iwakuma

The Angels were among 4 teams to scout Japanese pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma's last rehab start. You may recall that he failed to reach an agreement with the A's last winter after they won his rights via the posting system. He was also featured in my rundown of NPB prospects at the time. He is back pitching with NPB's Rakuten Golden Eagles this season and has full free agency rights this winter (meaning no posting fee this time). He is a forkballer and many expected him to fill a mid- or back-end rotation spot for Oakland. My guess is the Angels are scouting him for a similar role in 2012 and beyond.
