Ichiro Suzuki Batting 8th For Yankees Monday Night Against Mariners

Ichiro Suzuki, fresh from being traded from the Seattle Mariners to the New York Yankees, will bat eighth against his former team Monday night for the start of a four-game series at Safeco Field. Ichiro will man right field with Nick Swisher out. Once Swisher returns, Ichiro should spend most of his time in left field for New York. You can check out the Yankees full lineup below:

Derek Jeter, SS
Curtis Granderson, CF
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Raul Ibanez, DH
Andruw Jones, LF
Ichiro Suzuki, RF
Russell Martin, C

Hiroki Kuroda, RHP

Ichiro was acquired Monday in a trade that sent pitching prospects D.J. Mitchell and Danny Fahrquar to Seattle. With Brett Gardner out for the season the Yankees needed immediate help in the outfield and in a quick turn of events acquired a 38-year-old, 10-time All-Star.
