Ichiro Suzuki to sign one-year deal with Seattle

Ichiro played in Seattle from 2001 to 2012, a favorite of Mariners fans but also everybody else because it's Ichiro and we're not made of stone.

Seattle Mariner outfielder Ben Gamel has been ruled out 4-to-6 weeks with a strained oblique.

The deal for Ichiro could be ready to sign by early Tuesday, said one source. He was both American League MVP and Rookie of the Year in 2001.

Gamel is one more name being added to a long list of players with ailments for Seattle. The club has seen a number of players slowed by injury this month, potentially making room for Ichiro. Outfielder Guillermo Heredia has not returned from shoulder surgery during the offseason, leaving the Mariners thin in the outfield. After three years in NY and three with the Miami Marlins, Ichiro received a buyout when Miami did not pick up his option.

Gamel hit.275 with 11 home runs and 59 RBIs in 134 games last season for Seattle.
