PEORIA, Ariz.—Ichiro Suzuki went 0 for 4 the day Felix Hernandez made his debut for the Seattle Mariners in 2005. “Every time he came up to the plate was a hit,” Hernandez said by his locker on Tuesday at the Peoria Sports Complex. On Wednesday, the Mariners announced a one-year contract with Suzuki, a former American League Most Valuable Player. About 16 kilometres down Bell Road, at the Texas Rangers’ complex in Surprise, Ariz., another former superstar has also found a home. Seattle traded Suzuki to the New York Yankees in 2012 and in the last five seasons he has hit just .263.
