Suzuki came to Seattle in 2001 after playing 9 years in Japan. Sources say he will sign once he clears a physical test.

Ichiro burst on the MLB scene in a big way in 2001 when he was named the American League's MVP and rookie of the year. Gamel felt the injury for the first time last week during batting practice. Gamel joins right-fielder Mitch Haniger (hand) and fourth outfielder Guillermo Heredia (shoulder) on the sidelines.

Gamel is added to a growing list of ailments for the Mariners.

Ichiro Suzuki set to return to the Mariners, per reports

Longtime Major League outfielder Ichiro Suzuki soon could return to the Seattle Mariners, the team with which he made his United States debut, USA Today reported. Suzuki played his first 11 full seasons in the majors with Seattle before being traded to the New York Yankees midway through the 2012 season. The move by Miami was the beginning of their payroll purge that new ownership, led by Derek Jeter, carried out during the offseason.

Last season he hit a dismal.255/.318/.332 for just 50 hits and 17 walks in 215 plate appearances. A 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove victor, Ichiro holds the record for hits in a season with 262 and has had 10 200-hit seasons during his career.

But now, it appears that the 44-year-old free agent, who has been out of a job along with many other familiar faces, is nearing a deal to return to the Seattle Mariners, where he played for twelve years.
