(SEATTLE) — The New York Yankees acquired 10-time All-Star outfielder Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners on Monday, in-exchange for right-handed pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar.
“Ichiro will be missed,” Mariners CEO Howard Lincoln said in a statement. “He owns a long list of Major League Baseball and Mariners club records, has earned many prestigious awards, and in my opinion, he will someday be a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.”
The 38-year-old Suzuki is a two-time American League batting champion and has led or tied Major League Baseball in hits seven times.
