Seattle Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki attempts to bunt during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., Wednesday. The Seattle Mariners have traded longtime superstar and fan favorite Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees in exchange for two minor-league prospects, the baseball team announced Monday. In the deal, the M’s have received right-handed pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar, who will report to the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers. The Mariners said “cash considerations” were also included in the trade, but did not elaborate. “On behalf of our ownership group and everyone in the Seattle Mariners organization, I thank Ichiro for the great career he’s had here in Seattle,” Mariners CEO Howard Lincoln said in a news release. “Several weeks ago, Ichiro Suzuki, through his long time agent, Tony Attanasio, approached Chuck Armstrong and me to ask that the Mariners consider trading him. Ichiro knows that the club is building for the future, and he felt that what was best for the team was to be traded to another club and give our younger players an opportunity to develop/Seattle PI.
