Tony Attanasio, the agent for Ichiro Suzuki, seems to be growing frustrated over the lack of attention his client is drawing from the Yankees here in early December. Via George King of the New York Post:
“At the beginning we talked a lot but since that time, zero,” Attanasio said. “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.”
Ichiro has made it known that he wants to remain in pinstripes and that remains the likeliest scenario.
The Yankees’ decision-makers have simply been to busy working on deals with veteran pitchers. Hiroki Kuroda inked a one-year, $15 million contract on November 20, Andy Pettitte agreed to a one-year, $12 million pact on November 28 and Mariano Rivera signed for one year and $10 million on November 30.
Ichiro, 39, batted .322/.340/.454 across 240 plate appearances with the Bombers this past season.
