The Miami Marlins and outfielder Ichiro Suzuki have agreed to terms on a contract, reports Craig Mish of The Ticket in Miami.

According to numerous reports, the deal will be for one year, and he will make around $2 million.

Suzuki, 41, hit .284 with one home run, 22 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 143 games last season for the New York Yankees.

He spent the last two-plus seasons with the Yankees, after being acquired from the Seattle Mariners near the trading deadline in 2012.

Suzuki started his major-league career with the Mariners in 2001, winning both the American League MVP and Rookie of the Year awards that season after leading the AL in batting average, hits and stolen bases.

He will enter the 2015 season second on the active list in hits, and is only 156 hits shy from becoming the 29th player to reach 3,000 hits.

In 14 seasons, Suzuki has a career average of .317 with 112 home runs, 717 RBI and 487 stolen bases.
