The New York Yankees have signed outfielder Ichiro Suzuki to a two-year contract. The deal is reportedly worth 13-million-dollars.
Ichiro hit .322 with five homers and 27 RBI in 67 games with the Yankees following his July 23rd trade from Seattle.
He hit safely in each of his first 12 games with New York, tying Don Slaught’s record set in 1988 for the longest hitting streak to begin a Yankee career.
Overall, the 39-year-old Ichiro hit a combined .283 with nine home runs and 55 RBI in 162 games with the M’s and Yankees last year.
The 10-time All-Star is a career .322 hitter with 1,204 runs, 308 doubles, 104 homers, 452 stolen bases and 660 RBI in 1,911 games.
