Gamel is one more name being added to a long list of players with ailments for Seattle. Outfielder Guillermo Heredia has not returned from shoulder surgery during the offseason, leaving the Mariners thin in the outfield.

The Marlins declined to pick up a $2 million contract option and bought him out for $500,000, making him a free agent.


Ichiro has already reached the 3,000 hit milestone in his Major League Baseball career, he's just looking for longevity at this point. He set a new record with 109 appearances at the plate as a pinch hitter, and posted a franchise record for pinch-hits with 27.

Last season he played on a part-time basis with the Marlins, batting just.255/.318/.332 in 196 at-bats, the lowest of his career.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today is reporting that the Mariners are close to finalizing a one-year major-league deal with the 44-year-old outfielder.
