Ichiro Suzuki: ‘Very special’ to play for Mariners again
Back in Seattle Mariners colors for the first time in more than five years, Ichiro Suzuki cherished the moment during his spring training debut Sunday.
It was a special moment for me to wear the Mariners uniform again and be out on the field, Ichiro said through interpreter Allen Turner, according to the Seattle Times. It was very special for me today.
Boras, who attended the news conference, was not so happy with the contract.
Across the board, Moose dotted all the I’s and T’s of what excellence is in his performance, Boras said. When you have a system that delays recognition of that and demand for that, you know and you have inherent notice that the flag’s been raised. We’ve got to adjust that.
Right-handed starter Ian Kennedy, another Boras client, welcomed Moustakas back into the clubhouse.
I know he was expecting a big, long contract, Kennedy said. I’m excited that we get to have him back for another year. It happened to work out that we have him for another year.
The Hawks say that an MRI on Monday revealed the injury.
Backup Jaylen Morris, also injured in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, will miss about two to four weeks with a sprained left ankle.
Guard Dennis Schroder, the team’s top scorer who missed Sunday’s game with a left elbow injury, is listed as probable for Tuesday night’s game against Oklahoma City.
The Hawks, tied with Orlando for the worst record in the Eastern Conference, have lost three straight games.
Washington has lost five of its past seven games.
