Well, it seems Ichiro Suzuki is taking his talents from the ‘City That Never Sleeps’ to the ‘Sunshine State’.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting Ichiro Suzuki has agreed to a one-year, $2 Million deal with the Miami Marlins pending a physical.
The Yankees made it clear with the signing of Chris Young earlier in the offseason they weren’t interested in reuniting with Ichiro, and throughout the entire offseason, interest in Ichiro has been rather thin.The Marlins envision Ichiro as their fourth outfielder, a role Ichiro had in 2014 before Carlos Beltran went down with an elbow injury. In 143 games with the Bronx Bombers last season, Ichiro hit .284/.324./.340.
Well Ichiro, the last two and a half years were fun while they lasted. Thanks for all the Spiderman catches at the right field wall and for proving age is just a number.
