Ex-Yanks OF Ichiro Wants to Play in 2015

Former Yankees' Speedster Ichiro Suzuki wants to play next season.

He revealed so during a recent interview on MLB Network's Studio 42 with Bob Costas. Ichiro, 41, was traded to the Yankees in July of 2012, and has hit .281 with 13 home runs and 84 RBI for them since then.
“I have every intention of playing in the Major Leagues next year,” Ichiro said, via The Journal News. “Where will that be? I cannot tell you because baseball is not an individual sport and so it’s not just up to my feeling that I want to play."
That's certainly true, but nonetheless, it's a safe bet Ichiro's days in New York are over. The Yankees just signed Chris Young to a new one-year deal yesterday, basically solidifying his role as their 2015 fourth outfielder.
"Somebody has to feel that they want to give me the opportunity to play," Ichiro said. "But I have
every intention of playing.”
Unfortunately for him, though, no teams have openly expressed interest yet. However, sources such as CBS New York and Sodo Mojo have suggested the Mets and Mariners as possible destinations, with CBS arguing that his prescence would help the club's younger guys.
