Mariners OF Ben Gamel out 4-6 weeks with strained oblique

Bob Nightengale of USA Today is reporting that the Mariners are close to finalizing a one-year major-league deal with the 44-year-old outfielder.

Outfielder Ichiro and the Seattle Mariners are finalizing a one-year deal that would bring back the legendary Japanese star to the place where he started his Major League Baseball career, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. The report comes on the same day after it was reported that Mariners outfielder Ben Gamel will miss 4-6 weeks with a strained oblique muscle. Gamel joins right-fielder Mitch Haniger (hand) and fourth outfielder Guillermo Heredia (shoulder) on the sidelines.

Gamel, 25, is in line for regular at-bats with the 2018 Mariners after posting a solid.275/.322/.413 slash with 11 homers, 27 doubles and five triples through 550 plate appearances previous year in his first full big league season.

White House fights report of McMaster ouster as whisper campaign escalates
The task of transitioning McMaster out of his National Security Advisor position presents a unique challenge for the White House. President Donald Trump strongly denied reports Thursday suggesting his national security advisor is on the way out.

Ichiro Suzuki will return to the Seattle Mariners, as he and the Mariners are working out a deal to sign the former icon of the franchise.

The Miami Marlins did not pick up Ichiro's club option of $2 million making him a free agent for this season. He has 3,080 hits in his 17-year career in the U.S. Before coming to the U.S.in 2001, he played professionally in his native Japan for nine years. He signed with them in 2001 and earned 10 American League All-Star bids and 10 Gold Gloves in 11½ seasons.

On July 4 of previous year, Ichiro's batting average was.202, but the remainder of the season he hit.315 and finished at.255. That would make him unavailable for the start of the season.
