Ichiro Suzuki OF MIA 4 weeks ago

Suzuki is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

This will mark the second straight game that the veteran has rested after starting five of the previous six. Expectations weren't high for the 41-year-old Suzuki even after the expected short-term bump in playing time, but he's recently become an offensive liability, going hitless in his last 30 plate appearances. Until he can shake it off, he will likely continue to surrender starts to Cole Gillespie in right field.

Suzuki will start in right field and bat seventh Saturday against the Dodgers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

A broken hamate bone in Giancarlo Stanton's hand will create a 4-to-6 week window for Suzuki to see regular starts for Miami. The 41-year-old has hit .275/.325/.320 with one homer, 11 RBI and six stolen bases in 71 games so far this season (166 PA). Cole Gillespie was called up to take on a reserve role in the outfield.

Suzuki will bat third in the order and start in right field Sunday against the Giants, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

With Giancarlo Stanton getting the day off, Ichiro will be called upon to take over his regular spot. The 41-year-old has certainly earned in during his time filling in for Christian Yelich, collecting a base hit in each of his last eight starts.

Suzuki went 2-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals.

Ichiro continues to play well in place of Christian Yelich (back), who is expected to return to the lineup Friday. Suzuki has hit in eight of his last 10 starts, posting a .324 average with five runs, six RBI and a pair of steals. Unfortunately, there just aren't too many at-bats to for the veteran outfielder when Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna are all healthy.

Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a walk, one run scored and two stolen bases batting out of the leadoff spot in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Baseball fans got a glimpse of vintage Ichiro on Sunday as he drew a leadoff walk, promptly swiped second and third before scoring on a sacrifice fly. Suzuki has been solid for the Marlins while filling in for Christian Yelich (back) in left field, batting .269/.324/.343 over 67 at-bats this season. Unfortunately, his time in the starting lineup could be coming to an end with Yelich expected to return later this week.

Ichiro Suzuki OF MIA 3 months ago

Suzuki hit his first home run of the year -- a three-run shot -- in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

With that, Ichiro's matched his homer total from all of last season. Obviously, the 41-year-old outfielder is a shadow of his former self at this point, but he's been seeing semi-regular playing time in the Marlins' outfield lately. Unfortunately, he's just 0-for-1 on the basepaths -- where he's expected to generate what little fantasy value he's got left -- so far this year.

Suzuki posted his second straight 2-for-4 game Sunday in a win over the Nationals.

Ichiro has seen the bulk of the playing time in left field since Christian Yelich (back) hit the DL and the veteran hit machine is making the most of his opportunities. He's collected at least one hit in each of his last six starts while pushing his season line to .304/.353/.348 with eight runs scored. He'll continue to see every day action for the next couple of weeks.

Suzuki is in the lineup hitting seventh and playing left field Friday.

Christian Yelich (back) was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday, so Suzuki could be in line for regular action in left field in the short term.

Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and one run scored in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Ichiro has stepped in for an injured Christian Yelich (back) for the last few days and is in the lineup batting sixth again on Thursday. Suzuki is off to a .267/.343/.333 start over 30 at-bats with the Marlins and figures to see the majority of playing time in left field while Yelich is sidelined.

Suzuki will enter Tuesday's lineup in place of the injured Christian Yelich (back).

Yelich was slated to start in left field in Tuesday's game, but he was scratched with tightness in his lower back, and Suzuki will get the nod instead. Suzuki will hit sixth against Phillies starter Jerome Williams.
