ESPN: Ichiro Close To Deal With Marlins

Looks like another old guy is moving to Florida:

Free-agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is close to an agreement on a one-year contract with the Miami Marlins, a baseball source confirmed to ESPN.com Friday.. Although the two sides are still working through some final details before the deal becomes official, Suzuki is expected to earn a base salary of about $2 million in 2015.

The Marlins, who have one of baseball’s most talented young outfields with Giancarlo Stanton in right field, Marcell Ozuna in center and Christian Yelich in left, plan to use Suzuki as their first outfielder off the bench.

Probably can’t get to 3,000 MLB hits this year, unless he plays a lot more than envisioned, but he’ll get closer.
