Free-agent OF Ichiro Suzuki (Yankees) said he plans to play for an MLB team in 2015. "I have every intention of playing in the Major Leagues next year," Ichiro said. "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. Somebody has to feel that they want to give me the opportunity to play. But I have every intention of playing."

There is no timetable for New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (elbow) to return to right field. He's been the team's full-time designated hitter since his return from the disabled list earlier this month. Beltran is in the middle of a throwing program, and he hopes to return to the outfield this year. OFs Ichiro Suzuki and Alfonso Soriano are platooning in right field as a result.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the plan will be to play OF Alfonso Soriano only against left-handed pitchers moving forward. Soriano snapped an 0-for-16 slump with two hits against a lefty Thursday, June 5. Soriano will likely split time in right field with OF Ichiro Suzuki. Soriano is hitting .195 in 123 at-bats against righties and .303 in 66 at-bats versus southpaws.
Fantasy Tip: The plan limits Soriano's value to deep mixed and AL-only leagues for the time being, but it should make him much more productive when he does play.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he would consider using OF Ichiro Suzuki to pitch in an emergency situation. "I'll definitely ask him if he could do it," Girardi said. "It looks like he has pretty good stuff." Suzuki was a star pitcher in high school and pitched to one batter in the 1996 Japan All-Star Game. He does shoulder exercises and plays long toss all year long, and could probably throw 40-50 pitches without any problem. "I would be happy to help if they need me," Suzuki said.
