Mariners close to deal to bring Ichiro back to Seattle


The Mariners announced earlier Monday that outfielder Ben Gamel will miss four to six weeks with an oblique injury, jeopardizing his availability for Opening Day and opening a potential roster spot for the 44-year-old Ichiro.

"He keeps himself in great condition, he's willing to accept any role at this point in his career, obviously there's a little bit of a nostalgia fringe benefit I think to him coming back, but I think it's more sort of a short-term fix", Crasnick said of Ichiro.

The future Hall of Famer has accumulated 3,080 hits over his 17-year major league career.

The Mariners had high hopes for Gamel this season after posting a.275 batting average with 59 RBI's a year ago.

Suzuki, who spent the past three seasons with the Miami Marlins, is getting close to finalizing a one-year major-league deal with the Seattle Mariners, according to a report by USA Today's Bob Nightengale.




The Mariners' outfield has been decimated by injuries. New ownership decided not to exercise his $2 million option for 2018 and instead gave him a $500,000 buyout.

It's been over five years since Ichiro Suzuki last wore No. 51 for the Seattle Mariners, but that is reportedly about to change.

- Sept 9: set Major League Baseball record for most pinch hit at-bats in a season with 84.

Last year, Ichiro hit.255 with three home runs and 20 RBIs in 136 games for the Miami Marlins. He became just the sixth player 43 or older to record at least 50 hits.

The Mariners will be without their starting left fielder to begin the season.
