Suzuki went 2-for-4 batting in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder batted fifth in the game after spending time in the sixth position and leadoff spot over the last week. He's taken over as the Marlins' primary right fielder with regular starter Giancarlo Stanton (groin) expected to miss the remainder of the season. Ichiro went hitless in his first two games as a regular but is 4-for-11 with a walk over the past three games and boasts an impressive .313/.384/.387 triple slash over 230 at-bats with nine steals 13 RBI and 32 runs scored. He figures to bat fifth or sixth most games while occasionally spelling Dee Gordon at the top of the order.

Suzuki will be the Marlins' starting right fielder until Giancarlo Stanton returns from the disabled list, Bob Nightengale of the USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although it will hurt the Marlins to be without Stanton's power, Suzuki is a more than capable backup in the midst of a resurgent season. With a .319/.389/.390 line, it's entirely possible that the 42-year-old Suzuki could see a spike in runs scored while Stanton recovers from a groin injury. Suzuki will be batting leadoff Sunday as the Marlins take on Chris Sale and the White Sox.

Suzuki tripled in the seventh inning of Sunday's 10-7 win over the Rockies to collect his 3,000th MLB hit.

EDGE Analysis

Ichiro became the 30th player in MLB history to reach the milestone and has done so while enjoying a productive season as the Marlins' fourth outfielder at the age of 42. On the year, he's put together a solid .317/.390/.380 triple slash with 31 runs scored and nine steals over 205 at-bats.

Suzuki went 1-for-2 after entering Saturday's game as a pinch-hitter and is now just one hit away from 3,000 base knocks for his MLB career.

EDGE Analysis

The future hall-of-famer is expected to be in the lineup Sunday as he chases history against the Rockies in Colorado. Ichiro has enjoyed a bounce-back season, slashing .318/.389/.373 over 201 at-bats in a reserve role as he continues to pad his impressive resume.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Don Mattingly isn't forcing the issue with Suzuki as he approaches 3,000 career hits, but it would be surprising if the 42-year-old didn't get a start either Saturday or Sunday with two right-handers (Chad Bettis and Jon Gray, respectively) due up for Colorado. Suzuki hasn't started a game since July 29 and is 8-for-34 (.235 average) so far in the second half.

Suzuki is again out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 42-year-old's march toward 3,000 hits continues, but he'll start on the bench for the fifth consecutive game. Suzuki has notched at least one pinch hit at-bat in each of the last four games, however, and that could again be the case Wednesday afternoon.

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki will have to wait to continue chasing 3,000 career hits. The Marlins will start Christian Yelich in left field; however, Suzuki has entered recent games as a pinch hitter, so an appearance in Tuesday's contest is entirely possible.

Suzuki went 1-for-5 in Tuesday's game and now sits three hits away from 3,000 for his career, but he is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki will get another chance to go for 3,000 soon, but that opportunity will not come Wednesday. The Marlins will roll with their regular outfield of Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna, and Giancarlo Stanton from left to right.
