(The Spread) – For the first time since making his Major League debut in 2001, Ichiro Suzuki will don a new uniform very soon.

Jack Curry of YES Network reported on Monday that the New York Yankees have acquired Ichiro from the Seattle Mariners for right-handed prospects D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar. As part of the deal, the Yankees are also expected to get an undisclosed amount of cash. Ichiro has struggled this year, as he’s hitting just .261 with 49 runs scored and four home runs.

The Yankees remain favored to win the 2012 World Series with 9/2 odds, and they’re currently 3/1 to win the American League pennant this year. They opened with 13/2 odds and were 11/4 to win the AL pennant when the original odds were released following the St. Louis Cardinals’ victory over the Texas Rangers in last year’s Fall Classic.

Ichiro is a 10-time All-Star and a 10-time Gold Glove winner. He’s also won three Silver Slugger awards, is a two-time American League Batting Champion and was named the American League MVP back in 2001. He was also the AL Rookie of the Year in 2001 and was the AL Stolen Base Champion that year as well.

The Yankees and Mariners weren’t the only clubs making moves on Friday as Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reported that the Tigers acquired right-hander Anibal Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante from the Marlins. This has led to speculation that Hanley Ramirez and Heath Bell could also be dealt at the deadline as Miami looks to unload salary.
