Report: Yankees acquire Ichiro from Mariners

Jack Curry of the YES Network has reported that the New York Yankees have acquired 10-time all-star Ichiro from the Mariners in exchange for DJ Mitchell, Danny Fahrquar, and cash. The outfielder played 10 and a half seasons with the Mariners and broke the single-season hits record with 262 in 2004. He had 10 consecutive seasons with 200 hits or more which broke Wee Willie Keeler’s record of 8 straight seasons in the late 1800s through the early 1900s. The Yankees are in need of a permanent outfielder with the injury to Brett Gardner so Ichiro should be a very good fit in the Bronx.
