Ichiro Suzuki and Marlins Agree to One-Year Deal

Ten-time All Star free agent Ichiro Suzuki has agreed to join the Miami Marlins this season, according to multiple reports.

Ichiro, who will enter the season at 41 years of age and is 157 hits away from his 3,000th hit, is being brought in as depth and insurance to a thin outfield corps.

The contract, a reported, one-year $2 million deal, could be extended after this season if the Marlins want to be the team Ichiro reaches the 3,000th hit with, though a 2016 extension probably won't be in the cards.
