Ichiro and Seattle Mariners finalizing deal

Ichiro played in 136 games for the Marlins last season, predominantly as a pinch hitter.

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

If Ichiro returns to Seattle, Japanese fans could be treated to a showdown with Shohei Ohtani, who has just joined the Los Angeles Angels as a pitcher and batter. Gamel felt the injury for the first time last week during batting practice. "(Mariners general manager) Jerry Dipoto probably didn't feel like he needed to go out and make a big move because these injuries are sort of minor".

Bob Nightengale reports that Ichiro Suzuki is close to finalizing one year major league deal with the Seattle Mariners. Another returning outfielder, Guillermo Heredia, is coming off shoulder surgery and is being worked in slowly. New ownership decided not to exercise his $2 million option for 2018 and instead gave him a $500,000 buyout.

Ichiro holds the single-season Major League Baseball record of 262 hits, set in 2004. He batted leadoff and played right field for a team that won 116 games before losing to Lucifer's own New York Yankees in the ALCS. But he managed 27 pinch hits, one short of a single season record.

The prospect emerged months after the 44-year-old former Mariner became a free agent after three seasons with the Miami Marlins and 17 total in the majors.
