Ichiro Suzuki's struggles continue

Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-3 from the dish with one strikeout

Fantasy Impact

Ichiro struggles again from the plate and it may not get any better, anytime soon. He has hit .200 versus right-handed pitching this season with zero home runs and zero RBI.

Ichiro close to signing with Mariners

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Ichiro Suzuki and the Seattle Mariners are close to agreeing to terms on a one year deal.

Fantasy Impact

This is probably reaction to the Ben Gamel injury, but it's a move baseball fans will be delighted to see. Ichiro is now 44 years and old, and while he has said he wants to play until he's 50, ending his career in Seattle would be a fitting move. The future Hall of Famer hit just .255 in 2017, and shouldn't be someone fantasy players spend too much time thinking about.

Ichiro to become a free agent

The Miami Marlins have declined Ichiro's $2 million option for the 2018 season.

Fantasy Impact

Ichiro is about to turn 45 but has said he wants to continue playing until he's 50. He hit just .255 this past season, but could provide value as a fourth outfielder to a young team. During his prime Ichiro was one of the best we have ever seen. In the 10 year stretch from 2001-2010 he hit .300 or better 10 times, won 10 gold gloves, and started in 10 All-Star games.

Ichiro Suzuki starting for Marlins on Monday night

Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field for the visiting Miami Marlins on Tuesday night, as he returns to Seattle to face his former team. He will be honored in a pregame ceremony by the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

While Ichiro is a future hall-of-famer and is still a serviceable major league hitter, he is not going to play enough this season to warrant any serious fantasy baseball consideration outside of daily fantasy lineups.

Ichiro Suzuki (back, quad) close to returning

Ichiro Suzuki is expected to go through a "mini workout" Monday, with a full workout likely for Tuesday, as he works his way back from back and quadriceps issues after colliding with a teammate during an outfield drill last week.

Fantasy Impact

Ichiro Suzuki is ageless and tends to stay healthy, even as he continues to play baseball on the other side of 40. Ichiro is a part-time player at this point in his career, which limits his fantasy value.
