Suzuki went 2-for-4 with his first homer of the year in Wednesday's road loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

It was a garbage-time homer with the Marlins down 10-4 and no one on base, but it was still a great moment for Ichiro, who spent 12 remarkable years in Seattle. This could have been his last MLB game at Safeco Field (where he hadn't appeared since 2014 until this series), but you never know -- he doesn't seem all that inclined to retire after this season ends. That said, he's hitting just .158 in the early going while serving as the Marlins' fourth outfielder.

Suzuki went 0-for-3 with three groundouts in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The hitless performance dropped Suzuki's average to .067 (1-for-15) on the young season, and he's also struck out six times in 15 plate appearances. The 43-year-old former batting champion isn't a starter and can't do much with the bat in the twilight of his career. He'll probably steal a few bags here and there, but he's mainly a bench option in deep NL-only affairs.

Suzuki went 2-for-3 in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The future Hall of Famer had a slow start to the spring following an outfield collision, but Suzuki is now hitting .316/.325/.342 through 38 at-bats. The 43-year-old will serve as the Marlins' fourth outfielder once again this season, with his playing time largely tied to Giancarlo Stanton's health.

Suzuki (back) will serve as the Marlins' designated hitter and bat eighth in the lineup in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki tweaked his back earlier in the spring following a minor outfield collision, and the Marlins have been limiting the veteran's workload accordingly. His entry into the lineup at DH on Sunday seemingly implies he's in little danger of missing the start of the regular season, and it shouldn't be long before he sees time in the corner outfield again. Suzuki figures to open the season as the Marlins' fourth outfielder, with most of his starts coming when one of Marcell Ozuna, Giancarlo Stanton or Christian Yelich needs a maintenance day.

Suzuki (back) is making progress in his rehab and should return to team workouts on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins are easing the 43-year-old back into things after he collided with Brandon Barnes last week. They're not trying to rush the veteran back too soon, especially with the extended spring, so even when he joins the team for workouts Monday, he may be slightly limited. He shouldn't have any lingering issues, though, and will likely serve as Miami's fourth outfielder in 2017.

Suzuki (back/quad) took some batting practice in a cage and played catch Friday, The Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins are in no rush to get the 43-year-old back onto the field, but it looks like Suzuki won't have any lingering issues following his collision with Brandon Barnes earlier this week. He should once again be the team's fourth outfielder in 2017, with his fantasy value tied tightly to Giancarlo Stanton's ability to stay off the DL.

Suzuki (knee) skipped Wednesday's team workout while dealing with soreness from an outfield collision, Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

He collided with teammate Brandon Barnes on Tuesday during a routine drill, resulting in a sore quadriceps and back. The 43-year-old is known as an ironman, having spent time on the DL only once in his career. Suzuki will spend Wednesday on training machines, but it's clear the injury is nothing too serious.

Suzuki suffered a bruised right knee and also has a stiff back after a collision with a teammate on Tuesday, which will sideline him for a few days, the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer reports.

EDGE Analysis

He grazed Brandon Barnes in a minor outfield collision on the practice field, resulting in his first trip to the training room for treatment in his MLB career. Suzuki remained on the field briefly before heading to the clubhouse. He is set to serve as the Marlins' fourth outfielder this season, and this injury will not impact his availability for the start of the season.

Suzuki will once again be the Marlins' fourth outfielder in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

The future Hall of Famer reached 3000 hits in MLB last season, but will return to the Marlins' bench for at least one more season after a solid .291/.354/.376 line over 327 at-bats in 2016. Giancarlo Stanton's inability to stay healthy makes Miami's fourth outfielder a more valuable fantasy asset than most other backups, but Suzuki is still only a viable roster option in deep NL-only formats.

Suzuki's 2017 club option was exercised by the Marlins on Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, the Marlins will bring back the veteran Suzuki, who's owed $2 million next season, for one more year. The soon-to-be-43-year-old appeared in 143 games in 2016, batting .291 with 22 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
