Player Notes
Marlins signed OF Ichiro Suzuki to a one-year contract.

Advice: The deal is expected to be for around $2 million. Suzuki batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees and is 156 hits away from 3,000 for his major league career. Ichiro is 41 and has faded in recent years, but on a modest one-year deal as a fourth outfielder he's worth a shot.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Marlins are expected to finalize their one-year, $2 million contract with Ichiro Suzuki in the next couple days.

Advice: Ichiro still needs to take a physical before the deal becomes official. The veteran outfielder batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees. He'll be the Marlins' fourth outfielder.

SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports that the Marlins have agreed to a contract with Ichiro Suzuki.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says it's a one-year deal for around $1 million, which are the terms Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on Wednesday. Ichiro, who will serve as the club's No. 4 outfielder, batted .284/.324/.340 with one homer and 15 steals last season for the Yankees. He's 156 hits away from 3,000 for his major league career.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have offered a one-year contract to free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki worth $2 million.

Advice: According to Jackson, the Marlins are "optimistic, but not certain" that a deal will get done. Suzuki, 41, had drawn interest from several teams this month but the Marlins have remained the most steadfast in pursuit of him as a fourth outfielder. The 14-year major league veteran hit .284/.324/.340 with 15 stolen bases for the Yankees last season.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are "not ruling out" a two-year contract for Ichiro Suzuki.

Advice: Ichiro is 156 hits away from 3,000, and it sounds like the Marlins might want to capitalize on a potential attendance boost as Suzuki chases the milestone in year two. The problem, of course, is that Ichiro is already 41 and hasn't posted an OPS+ over 100 since 2010. Miami would use Suzuki in a fourth outfielder role.
