Marlins exercised the 2017 club option on OF Ichiro Suzuki's contract.
Suzuki, who turns 43 later this month, will make $2 million again in 2017. The veteran outfielder batted .291/.354/.376 with one home run, 22 RBI, and 10 steals over 143 games this year and reached the 3,000-hit plateau in the process. He's now sitting on 3,030 hits for his career and will have the chance to climb further on the all-time list next year. The Marlins also added an option for 2018, so he's not close to done yet.

Ichiro Suzuki went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Braves.

Ichiro had one of the seven hits and scored one of the five runs in the Marlins' five-run fourth inning. He then scored the tying run in the sixth as the Fish erased a 7-0 deficit before ultimately losing. Suzuki passed Lou Brock Monday on the all-time hit list and now sits at No. 25 with 3,025 base knocks.

Ichiro Suzuki smashed a pinch-hit, two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

Ichiro took tough reliever Hector Neris deep in the eighth inning to pull the Marlins to within one, but that's as close as they got. It was the future Hall of Famer's first home run since April of last season.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Monday’s extra-inning loss to the Mets.

Ichiro had a single and a double. He now sits at 3,011 hits for his career, which moves him ahead of Wade Boggs for 27th on MLB’s all-time list. The 42-year-old has scuffled since receiving more regular playing time, but he’s still hitting .298 with a .371 on-base percentage through 115 games.

Ichiro Suzuki etched his name in MLB history on Sunday, becoming the 30th player to reach the elusive 3000-hit milestone with his seventh-inning triple off of Chris Rusin in Colorado.

Suzuki had been hitless through his first three at-bats in the contest. He became the second oldest player in MLB history to reach the plateau and only the second player (Paul Molitor) to do so with a triple. The remarkable 42-year-old didn't even begin his MLB career until he was 27, and he had 1278 hits professionally in Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan before coming stateside. It's a truly amazing accomplishment for one of the game's best and a surefire Hall of Famer.

Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and batting sixth for the Marlins on Sunday.

He's taking Marcell Ozuna's spot as Ozuna gets some rest. Ichiro is one hit shy of 3,000 for his career and will get a chance to make history at Coors Field. This could be the day.

Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Cardinals.

The chase continues. Suzuki made the start on Friday after delivering a pinch-hit single on Thursday, but he failed to take advantage of the opportunity. He remains two hits away from 3,000 in MLB.

Ichiro Suzuki is out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Phillies.

Ichiro is three hits from 3,000, but the Marlins don't want to push the 42-year-old too hard. He went 1-for-5 with a single in Tuesday's 5-0 defeat of Philadelphia.
Wed, Jul 27, 2016 09:41:00 AM

Ichiro Suzuki settled for a single in five at-bats Tuesday against the Phillies, leaving him at 2,997 hits.

The Marlins will want Suzuki to get his 3,000th hit before their homestand ends on Sunday, so that will mean extra playing time for him this week. Marcell Ozuna sat tonight in order to make room for him.

Ichiro Suzuki is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Ichiro, who is four hits away from 3,000 in MLB, will start in center field and bat leadoff against Jerad Eickhoff. Marcell Ozuna will be on the bench.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 03:02:00 PM

Ichiro Suzuki collected his 4,256th and 4,257th career hits on Wednesday against the Padres.

That total includes his 1,278 hits from Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan and his 2,979 hits as a Major League Baseball player. Pete Rose holds the MLB record for career hits with 4,256, but nobody is counting what he did in the minors (if you want to compare NPB to the minor leagues). They're both obviously all-time greats.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-5 with an RBI as the Marlins fell in extra innings to the Twins on Tuesday.

Ichiro continues to charge toward the 3,000 hit mark for his major league career, with 2968 knocks after his two on Tuesday. He also swiped his sixth base of the season in the contest. He's having a resurgent season at the plate, hitting .317/.377/.365 with six RBI.
Tue, Jun 7, 2016 11:37:00 PM

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored Thursday against the Pirates.

Ichiro was once a prolific base-stealer, and he showed he's still got some juice left in those 42-year-old legs by swiping his third base of the season. His pair of hits also moved him two closer to 3,000 for his career -- he's now at 2,965 with roughly four months to play. His .323/.388/.376 line certainly suggests he'll hit that milestone some time in 2016.

Ichiro Suzuki doubled in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

Suzuki is now up to 2,961 hits in MLB. The 42-year-old has turned back the clock so far this season by batting .351 over 37 games, so he has made some serious progress over the first two months. Barring injury, he has a good chance to make it to 3,000 this year.
Fri, May 27, 2016 11:17:00 PM

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Thursday against the Nationals.

Ichiro had an awful spring, but he's 7-for-18 with two walks and no strikeouts since the games started to count. The Marlins might be tempted to find more at-bats for him, potentially at Marcell Ozuna's expense (also probably at the expense of the team as a whole).
