Dipoto: Ichiro will be on Japan Series roster

Possibly the worst kept secret in the history of baseball?

While Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto says there are many questions to be answered as the upcoming offseason plays out, one answer is already known. Ichiro Suzuki will be on the Major League roster when Seattle opens its regular season in Tokyo against the A’s in the Japan Series next March, as long as he is healthy.

Mariners rallying to get Ichiro in Home Run Derby

Since Day 1 of his major league career, Ichiro’s home run-hitting prowess in batting practice has been a well-known legend… There was always a long-held belief that he could be more of a power hitter if he chose to be, but as a speedy leadoff man he concentrated more on getting on-base with base hits.
