Mariners Trade Ichiro – Headed For New York

Yankees Mariners Baseball NewsIchiro Suzuki apparently asked Mariners CEO several weeks ago about a trade.

Although Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik was adamant about not trading Ichiro, today he was traded to the New York Yankees for prospect pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar.

Ichiro is stuck in the middle of his worst season in the major leagues, batting .261 with an OBP of .268 and a .352 slugging percentage.

Late last week it was announced that Brett Gardner would not play again this season, and Ichiro is seen as a replacement.

Additionally right fielder Nick Swisher has a strained hip flexor and will miss a few more games this week.

Ichiro has spent his entire 12 year career with the Mariners.

Earlier today we reported the Yankees would be looking to add offense as well as pitching at the trade deadline.
