Ichiro out longer than Mariners hoped

Ichiro out longer than Mariners hoped

Ichiro Suzuki's quest to make Major League Baseball history has been being stalled longer than expected because of his sore calf.
Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said on Tuesday that the nine-time All-Star will not play on Wednesday either, as the team had hoped.
Suzuki did some light work on Tuesday and Wakamatsu said the Japanese star was improving. Yet Suzuki missed his second consecutive game and likely remained sidelined until late this week.
He is 16 hits short of becoming the first player in MLB history to have nine consecutive seasons with 200 or more hits.
Tuesday was the 10th time the 35-year-old Gold Glove outfielder was not in the lineup this season. He made his season debut late on April 15 following a bleeding ulcer.
