Mariners sign Ichiro Suzuki ahead of expected Japan sendoff, report says

first_img Mariners GM says Ichiro Suzuki will be on Seattle’s opening day roster Ichiro Suzuki isn’t done with baseball yet.According to multiple reports, the 45-year-old veteran agreed to a minor league contract with the Mariners on Wednesday. Related News The deal is expected to officially be announced Thursday and paves the way for the team to activate Suzuki for their season-opening series in Japan as a sendoff to his Hall of Fame career.Earlier this year, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto announced that the team was planning to give Suzuki the chance to play in Seattle’s opening series against the Athletics in Tokyo. “Ichi will be on our team when we go to Tokyo,” Dipoto said. “He’ll be an active player. We are still committed to the idea of developing this roster. Mitch Haniger is going to be our right fielder, Mallex Smith is going to play center field and Domingo Santana will be the primary left fielder. And we’ll find at-bats for Jay Bruce, whether they be in left field, DH or occasionally at first base.”That’s the way we envision the 2019 season playing out. But one thing I’ve learned with Ichiro, first of all his preparation and focus is the best I’ve ever seen on any player I’ve ever encountered. His single-mindedness in achieving a goal is so real that I won’t put anything past him.”Suzuki — who was the AL MVP and Rookie of the Year for the Mariners in 2001 — has played 13 of his 18 MLB seasons in Seattle. Although he has 3,089 MLB hits, he batted .205 in 47 plate appearances for the Mariners last season and was later moved into the position of “assistant to the chairman” with the ballclub.last_img read more

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Is Le’Veon Bell playing in Week 10?

first_imgBell (knee) returned to Jets practice in a limited fashion on Thursday, and Jets coach Adam Gase said Friday “it looks good” in reference to Bell’s availability. On Saturday, Bell posted on Instagram: “by the way…i’m playing tomorrow.” [sic]WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back |  Wide receiver | Tight endSo, that should settle things. As long as Bell is active, he’s a must-start against a Giants defense allowing the ninth-most standard fantasy points per game to RBs. If Bell were to have a setback and be a surprise scratch, Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery would likely share touches in the backfield, with Powell having more value and functioning as a low-end RB2. WEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Le’Veon Bell playing in Week 10?UPDATE: Bell is officially ACTIVE.  Week 10 started off poorly for Le’Veon Bell, as he got a “surprise” MRI on Monday and missed Jets practice on Wednesday. He remains “questionable” heading into Sunday’s game against the Giants because of a knee injury, and fantasy football owners will continue searching for the latest active/inactive updates before locking in their start ’em, sit ’em decisions.

Reed topples Spieth as top seeds fall in Match Play

first_imgSanity check: Top seed Kansas holds on to beat Clemson “Just happened to be the perfect line,” Reed said. “Thank God, because that thing was moving.”Reed is among 16 players who won their group on Friday at Austin Country Club and advanced to single-elimination on the weekend, all of them from matches away from a World Golf Championships title.That group includes Justin Thomas, at No. 2 the top seed remaining, who can go to No. 1 in the world by winning.It doesn’t include Dustin Johnson, the defending champion who played so poorly that none of the three matches he lost made it to the 18th hole. Johnson left the gallery with one parting shot, a 489-yard drive that would be the longest in PGA Tour history except that stats from Match Play are not official.Rory McIlroy had a chance to advance except that he was beaten soundly by Brian Harman.ADVERTISEMENT The most anticipated match turned into a sloppy affair Friday when Spieth hit one shot out-of-bounds, two shots into a hazard and three times gave away a chance to win the hole by three-putting.And right when it looked as though Spieth might still have a chance, Reed buried him with a 40-foot birdie putt from behind the 17th green for a 2-and-1 victory in the Dell Technologies Match Play that sent Reed into the weekend and Spieth searching for answers.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“I don’t think it would have been that tough to beat me today,” Spieth said.Reed was tough enough when it mattered. He seized control with the prettiest shot of the match, a knockdown wedge into the wind that grazed the front edge of the cup on the 13th for a 2-up lead. He ended it with a putt that looked as though it might go 8 feet by until the hole got in the way.

He also becomes the home favorite from living part-time in Austin, where his wife gave birth to their first child last week.— Si Woo Kim outlasted Webb Simpson on the 18th hole to advance.— Matt Kuchar made a hole-in-one in a 6-and-4 victory over Ross Fisher to advance to the weekend for the second time in three years.— Bubba Watson birdied his last two holes to earn a halve against Julian Suri and avoid a playoff. Watson next faces Harman, a match of Georgia lefties.— Louis Oosthuizen beat Jason Day with two clutch putts, and then won the group with a 12-foot par putt in a playoff to beat Jason Dufner. This is the third time in four years that Oosthuizen has reached the weekend.— Kevin Kisner, a 4-and-3 winner over Johnson, figured he was headed for a playoff when Adam Hadwin took a 1-up lead on the 18th over Bernd Wiesberger.

And I’ve been trying to figure out how to get back to that level, and I’ve been trying different things.”Thomas and Sergio Garcia (No. 7) were the only top-10 seeds to advance to the fourth round. Thomas had the easiest time, a 7-and-5 victory over Francesco Molinari. Asked how he felt going into the weekend, Thomas replied, “The same as the other 16 guys. We all start at the same place.”Phil Mickelson was eliminated when Charles Howell III, who beat Lefty on Wednesday, completed a 3-0 mark in group play by beating Satoshi Kodaira.Howell and Ian Poulter, who swept his matches when Kevin Chappell conceded at the turn with a back injury, still have a chance to earn a spot in the Masters by getting into the top 50 at the end of the week. They both need to win at least one more match.Paul Casey might have had the toughest day: He lost twice.Casey only had to halve his match to advance for the third time in four years. He lost to Matt Fitzpatrick, and even then had a chance to win his group if the other match was halved. Instead, Kyle Stanley made an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win, and then he beat Casey on the second hole of a playoff.Tyrrell Hatton also was forced into a playoff, and he beat Brendan Steele on the first extra hole.The tightest match was Alex Noren and Tony Finau, one of four matches between players who had not lost all week. Finau won three straight holes on the back nine to take a 1-up lead, only to lose the 14th with a bogey. With the match all square, Noren made a 10-foot birdie at the 17th to go 1 up, and then holed a 15-foot par putt on the final hole to avoid going to a playoff with Finau.Noren now has won seven of his last eight matches in his event, his only loss coming to Johnson in the quarterfinals last year.
