Ichiro, the star outfielder of the Seattle Mariners, has been traded to the Yankees in exchange for DJ Mitchell and Danny Fahrquar, according to Jack Curry of the YES Network. We speculated last month that Ichiro’s days in Seattle were numbered, and the last-place Mariners finally pulled the trigger.
Rich get richer? Of course. Brett Gardner was lost for the season due to surgery recently, so expect to see Ichiro patrolling the outfield at Yankee Stadium very soon. Tonight, the Yankees continue their West Coast trip … in Seattle.
Go get that ring, Ichiro.
