Ichiro Suzuki re-signs with Marlins for 2016 season
The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.
Suzuki, who has 2,935 hits in 15 MLB seasons, will next year attempt to reach the elusive feat of 3,000 career hits in the majors. The 41-year-old, who signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Marlins last January, finished the 2015 season with 91 hits and a .229 batting average, both the lowest marks of his baseball career.
Between his time spent playing in Japan and America, Suzuki has a total of 4,213 professional hits and trails only Pete Rose (4,256) for the most all-time.
In his first MLB season in 2001, Suzuki batted .350 with 242 hits for the Seattle Mariners and won the American League MVP. The 10-time All Star finished with 206 or more hits in each of his first 10 seasons.
