  • Report: Ichiro, Mariners close to deal

But Bob Nightengale of USA Today has sources say that the Mariners will bring back a fan favorite in the 44-year-old Ichiro.

Suzuki came to Seattle in 2001 after playing 9 years in Japan.

Gamel, who is one of the best defensive outfielders in the game, hit.275 with 11 home runs, 27 doubles, five triples and 59 RBIs in his first full season in the big leagues.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, negotiations between the Mariners and Ichiro picked up in the last day to two after it became apparent that outfielder Ben Gamel would miss time with an oblique strain.

If a job in the majors had not opened up, he was planning to play in Japan for the 2018 season.

The Mariners have not made the postseason since Ichiro's prolific rookie season in 2001.
