The Marlins have offered a one-year, $2 million deal to Ichiro

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have offered a one-year contract to free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki worth $2 million.

Ichiro has reportedly drawn interest from several teams, but the Marlins are the ones who pop up the most in rumors. It’s hard to imagine he’ll do much better than a one-year, $2 million deal. It’s possible to imagine Miami finding another backup outfielder for around that price. So you have to figure Ichiro jumps soon or the Marlins move on.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
