The Mariners have placed starter Hisashi Iwakuma on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat muscle, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. The club has recalled left-hander Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.

Iwakuma got off to a rough start, allowing 13 runs in 16 1/3 innings over three starts, earning a loss and two no-decisions. Coming into 2015, he had a career 3.07 ERA in 524 innings over three seasons with the Mariners.
