Thank You, Ichiro.

Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is moving away from playing and will take on the role of special assistant to the chairman Thursday.

“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.”

Ichiro is a ten-time All-Star and the 2001 American League MVP.
