Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Yankees | Ichiro Suzuki acquired

The New York Yankees have acquired OF Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners for Ps D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar.

Fantasy Tip: It's a small boost, and you have to wonder if he'll play every day, but the Yankees' lineup increases the value of anyone, even an aging player that doesn't take many walks. Ichiro can take bags, and the Yanks want him to fill the speed void left by the sidelined Brett Gardner (elbow). He probably won't bat near the top of the lineup, but his new home boasts a much better cast and park to extract what little is left of his skills. Maybe he'll even use the short porch in right field more often.

Mitchell may turn into something useful for fantasy players down the road but, along with Farquhar, doesn't warrant attention this year.
