Ichiro rejoins Mariners at 44

Print Article

PHOENIX (AP) - Now that Ichiro Suzuki is back with the Seattle Mariners, he hopes to stick around a while.

"I think everybody hears that I want to play until I'm 50," he said through a translator. "But I want to make sure everybody understands that I always say at least 50."

The 44-year-old outfielder rejoined his former team Wednesday with a $750,000, one-year contract.

"Even in the offseason when I would go back to Japan, I always came back to Seattle. This was my home ... has always been my home," he said. "Somewhere deep inside, I wanted to return and wear this uniform again."

• YANKEES 11, METS 4: Mets starter Zack Wheeler scattered four hits and fanned four in three scoreless innings. Travis d'Arnaud homered for the first time this spring.
