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.
