Yankees Rumors: Ichiro Suzuki Done Waiting on New York?

Last week it was reported that free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki enjoyed his time with the New York Yankees so much that he was willing to wait for an offer from the club before making a decision on where to sign this offseason. Now, according to Suzuki’s agent, the player and his representation “don’t care what the Yankees do,” reports George A. King III of The New York Post.

"At the beginning we talked a lot but since that time, zero,’’ agent Tony Attanasio said of discussions with the Yankees. “As far as we are concerned we don’t care what the Yankees do. We have had conversations with multiple clubs. If we see something we like he will go through with it."

The Yankees have spent the first part of their offseason focusing on pitching, specifically re-signing their veteran arms. The club has since checked several to-do’s off its list, including agreements with Andy Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda and Mariano Rivera. Now New York is expected to shift its attention to position players.

Outfield is one of the Yankees’ areas of need, as Suzuki and fellow free agent Nick Swisher are no longer under contract. Last season Ichiro hit .322/.340/.454 with 13 doubles and five home runs over 227 at-bats after being traded to New York.
