Ichiro Suzuki still hasn’t officially re-signed with Yankees

8 Comments

Nearly a month ago Ichiro Suzuki and the Yankees were said to be close to a new contract and five days ago the deal was reportedly completed at $12 million for two years, yet he remains unsigned.

Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York spoke to a source who says the two sides are “almost there” but there’s “some language being worked out” before it can become official.

Suzuki hasn’t taken a physical exam yet, which will be needed before anything can be announced.

It’ll get done, but it might get done six weeks after it was supposedly “done.”
