Description: Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki had two hits and an RBI in the loss to the Nationals on Monday.
Insight: Suzuki was 2-for-4 in the game. He reached on an infield single in the eighth, which drove in the Marlins fourth run. Unfortunately, for Miami, they were unable to hold the two-run lead, losing, 6-4. Ichiro is hitting .282 with one home run, 10 runs and six RBI in 71 at-bats this season.

Description: Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki broke the Japanese runs scored record on Saturday as he went 2-for-4 with a run versus the Nationals.
Insight: Suzuki scored on Adeiny Hechavarria's three-run homer in the eighth, which made it 1,310 runs in his major league career. Including his 658 runs in Japan, Ichiro has scored 1,968 times in professional base, which is more than any other Japanese player. At 41-year-old, though, he is hardly fantasy relevant. Suzuki is hitting .286 with one RBI and no homers in 42 at-bats.
 
Hot4/23/2015 10:15:00 AM
Description: Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is a career 8-for-18 (.444) versus Phillies starter Dustin McGowan.
Insight: Suzuki has been starting the past few days because of the injury to Christian Yelich, so he'll likely get a shot at this favorable matchup. Ichiro is 3-for-7 with a pair of walks in the first two games of the series.
 
1/27/2015 10:39:00 PM
Description: The Marlins signed outfielder Ichiro Suzuki to a one-year deal.
Insight: Suzuki hit .284/.324/.340 with a home run and 15 steals last season in the Bronx. He is 156 hits away from 3,000 major league hits although he already has 4,000 counting his numbers from Japan. At 41 years old, Ichiro is really just a flier in standard leagues.
 
9/18/2014 2:43:00 PM
Description: Fantasy owners should avoid New York right fielder Ichiro Suzuki Thursday against Toronto.
Insight: Suzuki is just 4-for-23 with four strikeouts in his career against Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey. The outfielder has also struggled in September, batting .238 with a .565 OPS in the month.
 
6/22/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Fantasy owners should avoid New York right fielder Ichiro Suzuki Sunday against Baltimore.
Insight: He's only 2-for-18 against today's starting pitcher, Chris Tillman. Suzuki has had a nice year offensively, contributing a .307 average in 61 games. We're not expecting much from him on Sunday, however.
 
5/18/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki (back) will play in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader, according to Chad Jennings of lohud.com.
Insight: Ichiro has been one of the best fourth outfielders in baseball this season, hitting .364 with an .833 OPS in 55 at-bats. He hasn't started since May 11 due to a back injury. With Carlos Beltran on the disabled list, Ichiro could have a regular starting job going forward.
 
4/22/2014 4:08:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki will get the start Tuesday night against Boston and Jon Lester.
Insight: Ichiro is a career .333 hitter off Lester (17-for-51) with a couple of homers while Brett Gardner will take a seat.
 
3/2/2014 4:04:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki, who turns 41 in October, has no plans to retire and says he could play for "many" more seasons. SOURCE: ESPN New York
Insight: Ichiro has no interest in joining Derek Jeter on his farewell tour. Suzuki has been remarkably durable throughout his career, never playing fewer than 150 games in any of his 13 seasons. Regardless of Suzuki's future plans, it's tough to endorse him as a fantasy option while he platoons out in right field.
 
1/11/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is likely to be the fourth outfielder this season.
Insight: Barring injury, the Yankees starting outfield should be Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran with Alfonso Soriano as the primary designated hitter. That wouldn't leave many at-bats for Ichiro (.262, 7 HR, 35 RBI, 20 SB). Of course all four guys blocking his way have had frequent injury issues in the past, but for now Ichiro has little fantasy value.
 
9/6/2013 7:03:00 PM
Description: New York right fielder Ichiro Suzuki has the night off Friday against Boston.
Insight: Ichiro (.267, 7 HR, 32 RBI, 19 SB) is having his least productive season as a big leaguer. The 39-year-old is 270 hits away from 3,000 for his career. Keep in mind, he didn't play his first MLB game until age 27.
 
9/6/2013 1:06:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki is just 2-for-13 (.154) against Boston lefty Felix Doubront.
Insight: Ichiro is a lifetime .320 hitter this level of futility is rare for the Yankees outfielder. Avoid him on Friday.
 
9/3/2013 12:40:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki is just 2-for-11 (.182) against White Sox ace Chris Sale with four strikeouts.
Insight: Ichiro is a lifetime .320 hitter, who normally strikes out once every 10.68 plate appearances, so this is a rarity. Avoid him on Tuesday.
 
8/30/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki hit his first home run since the All-Star break Friday against the Orioles.
Insight: Ichiro went 2-for-3 with two RBI in the game but is hitting just 236 in August. He's a big name, but he shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues; he doesn't even steal that many bases anymore.
 
8/21/2013 9:47:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki picked up his 4,000th professional hit Wednesday against Toronto.
Insight: He also passed Lou Gehrig on the all-time major league list with his 2,722nd hit.
 
8/15/2013 10:11:00 AM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki is just 9-for-46 with 12 strikeouts and one RBI in his career against Angels starter C.J. Wilson.
Insight: While the Yankees have Alfonso Soriano, Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson locked in as starters, Ichiro is still getting everyday at-bats because manager Joe Girardi has been using the DH to get one of those four players a half day off. However, he doesn't have much fantasy value on a normal day and is unlikely to do anything if he's in the lineup Thursday against Wilson.
 
7/28/2013 8:26:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki picked up four singles in four at-bats Sunday to raise his average to .279.
Insight: Ichiro used to pick up four-hit games routinely, but he's not that player anymore. He hadn't collected multiple hits in his last nine games prior to Sunday.
 
7/22/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki is a career .500 hitter (7-for-14) against Texas right-hander Yu Darvish.
Insight: Apparently there are still a few matchups that Ichiro gets excited about. The outfielder is batting .277 this season with six homers, 25 RBI, 38 runs and 13 steals, however, he was just 2-for-14 in the recently completed series with Boston.
 
7/20/2013 9:30:00 AM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki is a career .304 hitter (31-for-102) against Boston starter John Lackey.
Insight: Ichiro has also stolen 11 bases off Lackey over his career, so if he gets on, he's likely running. The outfielder is batting .283 this season with six homers, 25 RBI, 36 runs and 13 steals.
 
7/14/2013 9:08:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki belted his sixth home run of the year Sunday against the Twins.
Insight: Ichiro finished the game with three hits. It didn't seem to help much as the Yankees still lost by six runs. The injury-plagued Bombers have now lost five out of eight after opening the month with six straight wins.
