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.

Ichiro will be a Marlin again in 2017

The Miami Marlins officially exercised outfielder Ichiro Suzuki's option on Wednesday, keeping him a Marlin for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Ichiro was an effective bench bat and fill-in starter as the Marlins fourth outfielder in 2016. He will return to a similar role in 2017, but shouldn't have much fantasy value outside of the deepest leagues (or if more injuries strike the Marlins outfield)

Ichiro Suzuki collects two hits on Thursday

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Marlins' 5-4 loss to the Reds on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The 42-year-old Ichiro Suzuki is now up to 3,007 hits in MLB. On the season, he sports a .313/.384/.387 slash line to go along with 13 RBI, 32 runs scored and nine steals through 105 games played. He's been a nice fourth outfielder for the Marlins this season, but can't be trusted on a daily basis for fantasy purposes.
