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.

Suzuki slapped a pair of singles Thursday in a win over the Phillies bringing him just four hits shy of 3,000 for his MLB career.

EDGE Analysis

Ichiro has turned his march towards 3,000 hits into more of a sprint -- when he's able to crack the lineup -- registering four multi-hit efforts in his last five starts. Unfortunately, with the Marlins' primary outfielders all healthy, the veteran finds himself on the bench more often than not. Still, he's likely to draw his fair share of starts during the team's 10-game home stand beginning Friday in the hopes of reaching the prestigious milestone in front of the home crowd.

Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a steal, a walk and a run Sunday at the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki led the Marlins 13-hit attack with three hits of his own while adding his eighth steal of 2016 in a winning effort. This was the first time he's had more than one at-bat in a game since July 2, and he's slashing .347/.423/.406 in 174 at-bats on the year.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Sunday night against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki has hit leadoff for the Marlins in five of their last seven games, but he'll take a seat for the evening contest at Fort Bragg military base. Giancarlo Stanton will return to right field, while J.T. Realmuto will hit at the top of the order for Miami. The 42-year-old is just 11 base knocks away from reaching the heralded 3,000-hit milestone.

Suzuki picked up two hits and a walk over five plate appearances during Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has started three straight games and is again leading off as the designated hitter on Wednesday as he continues to climb towards 3,000 MLB hits. Ichiro's pair of singles Tuesday raised his career total to 2,986, leaving him just 14 knocks shy of the milestone. The ageless outfielder is slashing .340/.418/.380 over 150 at-bats as he chases history.

Suzuki is batting leadoff and playing center field Saturday against the Cubs, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki is starting for the first time in two games in place of Marcell Ozuna who's getting a breather Saturday. At 42 years old, Suzuki is not getting the same playing time he used to as he's only seen 138 at-bats nearly half way through the season. However, the veteran is making the most of his opportunities this year as he's batting .348 with a superb .419 OBP.

Suzuki will hit leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki's playing time has been sparse over the last couple weeks with the Marlins' regular outfielders getting a lot of run, but he will replace a different outfielder Wednesday for the third day in a row, and again hit out of the leadoff spot. His playing time will remain minimal moving forward, but expect him to get the nod whenever one of the starting outfielders needs a day off.

Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

His resurgence and climb toward 3,000 major league hits has made for a great story, but Suzuki's still not playing all that regularly. Friday's absence will mark his fifth in the team's last seven games, and the 42-year-old will likely continue to see only sporadic opportunities barring injury to a starter.

Suzuki's double as part of a 2-for-5 day with a run scored Wednesday in San Diego was his 4,257th career hit between the Japanese league and Major League Baseball, one more than Pete Rose's MLB record.

EDGE Analysis

Although some will say that Rose still deserves the title of hit king, Ichiro can make a great argument for it himself even though some 1,278 of his hits came in Japan. Either way, it's an incredible accomplishment en route to his next trick, picking up his 3,000th MLB hit. With a .349 average over 126 at-bats this year, Ichiro's been a blast from the past, although his relative lack of counting stats will continue limiting his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

Suzuki went 3-for-4 with two walks, three runs scored, one RBI in Monday's 13-4 win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Ichrio bumped his season slash to a cool .350/.414/.392 while reaching base five times on Monday. He continues a frantic charge toward 3,000 career hits and after accumulating multiple hits in each of his last four starts, Suzuki is sitting just 23 base knocks away from the milestone. He'll continue to spell all three Marlins' outfielders with regularity as he chases down history.
