Report: Ichiro, Mariners close to deal

Ichiro Suzuki set to return to the Mariners, per reports

Ichiro Suzuki #51 of the Miami Marlins acknowledges the crowd while being honored by the Seattle Mariners before a game at Safeco Field on April 17, 2017 in Seattle, Washington. The deal is expected to be for one year.

Paul DeJong and the club have agreed to a contract extension that was finalized Monday morning when DeJong passed a physical, two sources have confirmed early Monday morning. Oh, and he won Rookie of the Year and American League MVP in the same year, it's whatever.

After coming close to losing him to another league because this offseason won't give us any fun or good free agent signings, it looks like Ichiro will be staying stateside to play baseball this year after all. Most recently, left fielder Ben Gamel suffered a strained right oblique muscle that will keep him out four to six weeks.

Gamel is one more name being added to a long list of players with ailments for Seattle. After three years in NY and three with the Miami Marlins, Ichiro received a buyout when Miami did not pick up his option. A 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove victor, Ichiro holds the record for hits in a season with 262 and has had 10 200-hit seasons during his career. 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.

He is Seattle's all-time leader in batting average (.322) and hits (2,533).

Ichiro is only the sixth player who is 43 years of age or older to have 50 hits or more in a season.
