Ichiro Suzuki finalizing one-year deal to return to Seattle Mariners

Ichiro Suzuki finalizing one-year deal to return to Seattle Mariners

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Seattle Mariners are close to signing a one-year deal with the 44-year-old.

The deal for Ichiro could be ready to sign by early Tuesday, said one source.

The Mariners were hopeful that Gamel would miss only a few days but an MRI revealed a more extensive injury after it was reviewed by team physicians. Gamel first felt the injury after batting practice late last week. The Mariners' injuries include first baseman Ryon Healy's hand, outfielder Mitch Haniger's hand and pitcher Felix Hernandez's forearm.

In 2001, Suzuki hit.350 with 242 hits and 56 stolen bases to earn the American League Rookie of the Year and AL MVP awards. New ownership decided not to exercise his $2 million option for 2018 and instead gave him a $500,000 buyout.

In his first 10 seasons, he accumulated at least 200 hits each year, including an all-time single-season record of 262 in 2004. He set a new record with 109 appearances at the plate as a pinch hitter, and posted a franchise record for pinch-hits with 27.

Ichiro was batting.202 on July 4 but hit.315 the rest of the way to finish at.255.

Despite the diminished numbers, Suzuki has gone on record saying he wants to play until he's 50.

Ichiro Suzuki is reportedly on the brink of returning to the place where he began his career in Major League Baseball. He has 3,080 hits in his 17-year career in the U.S. Before coming to the U.S.in 2001, he played professionally in his native Japan for nine years.
