The Mariners made an announcement on Monday that their outfielder Ben Gamel would miss up to six weeks due to an injured oblique, which puts his availability to play on Opening Day up in the air and opens a potential spot on the roster for the Ichiro.

Paul DeJong and the club have agreed to a contract extension that was finalized Monday morning when DeJong passed a physical, two sources have confirmed early Monday morning. Gamel first felt the injury after batting practice late last week.

Gamel is added to a growing list of ailments for the Mariners, who already have seen first baseman Ryon Healy (hand), outfielder Mitch Haniger (hand) and pitcher Felix Hernandez (bruised forearm) slowed by injuries during spring training. The left fielder joins a list of already ailing Mariner outfielders, with both Mitch Haniger and Guillermo Heredia now sidelined with injuries.

It's been over five years since Ichiro Suzuki last wore No. 51 for the Seattle Mariners, but that is reportedly about to change. He has a career.312 batting average and 3,080 hits in the majors.

Ichiro became a free agent after the Miami Marlins declined his option for 2018. The move by the Marlins was the start of an anticipated payroll purge by Derek Jeter's new ownership group. He batted leadoff and played right field for a team that won 116 games before losing to Lucifer's own New York Yankees in the ALCS.

Suzuki, a Japanese player who ranks 22nd on the all-time list with 3,080 Major League Baseball career hits, has said he wants to play until age 50.
