Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki told reporters that he hopes to return to the Miami Marlins next season after his one-year, $2 million contract expires at the end of the year.
Suzuki is set to turn 42 next month. He finished the 2015 season with 2,935 career hits in the majors. His 91 hit total and .229 batting average for 2015 were the lowest of his career.
In an interview with ESPN, Suzuki did not expect to retire from professional baseball any time soon.
“Retirement from baseball is something I haven't even thought about,” Suzuki said. “Not just a few. Many. For me, I feel there’s no reason for me to retire right now.”
Suzuki also holds a 9.00 ERA in one inning pitched.
