outfielder is likely to begin

Stephen Brashear/Getty ImagesVeteran outfielder Ichiro Suzuki will be part of the Seattle Mariners' active roster when the team plays the Oakland Athletics in Japan http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … eld-jersey , MLB.com's Greg Johns reported Tuesday.Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said the team will "presumably" only include Ichiro on the squad for the two-game Japan Series. Seattle and Oakland are allowed 28 players on the active roster for the series, compared to the 25-man limit for normal regular-season games.Ichiro played 15 games for the Mariners in 2018, his last appearance coming in the team's 3-2 defeat to the A's on May 2. A day later, Seattle agreed to a special arrangement with the 44-year-old in which he unofficially remained a member of the team without counting as an active player.His agent told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal in May he wasn't officially retiring and that playing in the Japan Series remained an option. Dipoto told reporters Tuesday the team is planning on having him at spring training as well, per Johns:"Ichi will be in spring training with us Rollie Fingers Jersey , and we're going to give him an opportunity as both a coaching presence and a player presence. We're still a long way off from Opening Day next year, but you will see Ichiro taking at-bats in Peoria, and we'll assess where we are at that time. But don't be surprised if you see him running around out there when we get to Tokyo next year early in the season."Having Ichiro play in Japan would be a nice moment. Beyond that, it's hard to see how he could maintain an on-field role with the Mariners.In his 18th season, he batted .205 before Seattle shut him down for the year. As a member of the Miami Marlins in 2017 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … nes-jersey , he had a .255/.318/.332 slash line and was worth minus-0.1 WAR, per FanGraphs.The Japan Series could at least give fans one more opportunity to see Ichiro in a Mariners jersey before he calls it a career. Tim Tebow could potentially be headed to the major leagues in 2019.New York Mets general managerBrodie Van Wagenen is apparently a believer in the former NFL star, saying Tuesday that he won't rule out the possibility of Tebow making the team's Opening Day roster, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.Van Wagenen noted that the outfielder is likely to begin the year in Triple-A, however.The 31-year-old is coming off his second season in professional baseball Johnny Manziel Jersey , spending the entire year in Double-A with theBinghamtonRumble Ponies. In 84 games, he hit six home runs while posting a .273/.336/.399 slash line.Although he was nearly seven years older than the average hitter in the Eastern League, perBaseball Reference, his numbers were respectable given his lack of experience.Previous general manager SandyAlderson, who originally signed Tebow in 2016 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … ers-jersey , thought he would eventually make it to the bigs."I think he will play in the major leagues,"Aldersonsaid last February, perMichaelDiRoccoof ESPN.com. "That's my guess. That's my hope, and to some extent now after a year and a half, a modest expectation."While there is now a new leader of the organization Rickey Henderson Jersey ,VanWagenenapparently also likes what he has seen from the outfielder.
