Ichiro Suzuki is hoping to stay around the major leagues long enough to reach 3,000 hits. The Baltimore Orioles need some help at outfielders.
Could there be a match between the Orioles and the now 41-year-old star from Japan?
The Orioles have lost both Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis in free agency and have missed out on signing other outfielders. Currently the Orioles have been linked to Nori Aoki, Colby Rasmus and Delmon Young.
Baltimore has lost Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis via free agency and is also considering free agents Nori Aoki and Colby Rasmus, as well as their own Delmon Young. Considering how thin then Orioles are in the outfield it would not be a surprise to see them sign more than one.
Suzuki played in 143 games for the Yankees last season hitting .284/.324/.340 with a home run and 42 runs scored. It has been years since Suzuki was a useful major leaguer but it will almost surely get a guaranteed deal.
