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.

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.
