Ichiro became a free agent when the Miami Marlins declined his $2 million club option for 2018. After 11 full seasons with the Mariners during which time he became a 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove victor, Suzuki joined the New York Yankees in a midseason trade.

Ichiro Suzuki, a 44-year old outfielder who spent over 12 seasons with Seattle, is nearing an agreement after spending 3 years with the Miami Marlins, according to USA Today Sports. He had 1,278 hits while playing nine years in Japan.

Ichiro holds the single-season Major League Baseball record of 262 hits, set in 2004. He had a.255 batting average with three home runs and 20 RBIs, and his 27 pinch hits left him one shy of the single-season record. The Mariners dealt him to the Yankees in the middle of the 2012 season.
