According to a report from Japan’s Nikkan Sports, the Yankees have re-signed Ichiro Suzuki to a one year contract worth $5 million plus incentives. There’s no confirmation of this yet, but the terms make sense, and we’ve heard since the end of the season that there was mutual interest in Ichiro returning to the Yankees in 2013. Stay tuned.
Update: Or not. Sweeney Murti checked up on the story, and was told that a deal is not done with Ichiro as of yet, but confirmed yet again that the Yankees have “strong interest” in re-signing Ichiro.
