Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki to enter front-office role for rest of '18 season

Quote:
Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is transitioning out of a playing role and will serve as a special assistant to the chairman, effective Thursday, the team announced.

"We want to make sure we capture all of the value that Ichiro brings to this team off the field," general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. "This new role is a way to accomplish that. While it will evolve over time, the key is that Ichiro's presence in our clubhouse and with our players and staff improves our opportunity to win games. That is our No. 1 priority and Ichiro's No. 1 priority."

He was fun to watch. Can you imagine the discussion where they basically demoted him from player to "friend of the team" in the middle of warmups. I just see his interpreter trying to explain that he's still allowed to warmup and take batting practice but then the Mariners just want him to sit in the clubhouse the rest of the day.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
This is incredibly odd. Just let him sit on the bench with some spot duty.
