[UPDATE 11/16 @ 2:38am]

Iwasaki was scheduled to attend the Twelve Team Tryouts on November 12, but he canceled at the last minute. He started a tryout with the Dragons on November 15. He will stay with the team until fall camp ends on November 20. Whether he gets a normal or Ikusei contract, assuming he passes his tryout, could depend on how many foreign players the Dragons sign this winter.
