Ichiro Suzuki is on the move from the only American baseball team he has played for. The Seattle Mariners today announced that they had acquired D.J Mitchell and Danny Farquhar from the Yankees in exchange for Suzuki. He is expected to play a combination of left and right field. He batted eight in front of Martin but don’t expect him to bat there too long. The addition of Ichiro also provides a very good lead off hitter when Derek Jeter needs a break, but he does provide a huge downside – age. Ichiro is 38 and possibly only has a few more years in him, if that. For the Yankees, it would still be worth pursuing a guy like Shane Victorino, who is a bit younger but still provides a great outfielder, on both offense and defense.
