will be part of the Seattle Mariners' active roster when the team plays the Oakland Athletics in Japan [url=http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-kemp-jersey]Matt Kemp Jersey[/url] , MLB.com's Greg Johns reported Tuesday.Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said the team will "presumably" only include Ichiro on the squad for the two-game Japan Series. Seattle and Oakland are allowed 28 players on the active roster for the series, compared to the 25-man limit for normal regular-season games.Ichiro played 15 games for the Mariners in 2018, his last appearance coming in the team's 3-2 defeat to the A's on May 2. A day later, Seattle agreed to a special arrangement with the 44-year-old in which he unofficially remained a member of the team without counting as an active player.His agent told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal in May he wasn't officially retiring and that playing in the Japan Series remained an option. Dipoto told reporters Tuesday the team is planning on having him at spring training as well, per Johns:"Ichi will be in spring training with us, and we're going to give him an opportunity as both a coaching presence and a player presence. We're still a long way off from Opening Day next year [url=http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-rich-hill-jersey]Rich Hill Jersey[/url] , but you will see Ichiro taking at-bats in Peoria, and we'll assess where we are at that time. But don't be surprised if you see him running around out there when we get to Tokyo next year early in the season."Having Ichiro play in Japan would be a nice moment. Beyond that, it's hard to see how he could maintain an on-field role with the Mariners.In his 18th season, he batted .205 before Seattle shut him down for the year. As a member of the Miami Marlins in 2017, he had a .255/.318/.332 slash line and was worth minus-0.1 WAR, per FanGraphs.The Japan Series could at least give fans one more opportunity to see Ichiro in a Mariners jersey before he calls it a career. The Milwaukee Brewers held onto first place in the National League Central throughout most of the first half of the season.However [url=http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-wood-jersey]http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-wood-jersey[/url] , they lost that lead in the final days before the All-Star break and will have to chase down the Chicago Cubs to regain it. While the Brewers appear to be a stronger team than the one that struggled in the second half of last season, they will almost certainly need to make some moves prior to the July 31 trade deadline.The Brewers were reportedly involved in the Manny Machado trade talks before the Baltimore Orioles ultimately sent him to the Los Angeles Dodgers for five prospects.They fell short in their attempt to get Machado, but they should be in a position to make several other moves. One of them could come in a deal with the Minnesota Twins for power-hitting second baseman Brian Dozier, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic.Rosenthal also reported the Brewers have some interest in acquiring additional pitching help. That would seem to be the case with most of the contenders, with the possible exception of the defending World Series champion Houston Astros.Dozier had 16 home runs and 48 RBI in the first half of the season, and he has been strong in the second half in each of the last two years [url=http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey]Starlin Castro Jersey[/url] , hitting hit 28 home runs in 2016 and 21 last year after the All-Star break.The New York Mets sit 4th in the NL East (40-55) and are not in contention for a playoff spot, even after their 11-1 start.However, the Mets' pitching is a strength despite clear problems with their hitting, fielding and base running.While it may take a blockbuster offer before they would consider trading Noah Synedegaard or Jacob deGrom, other hurlers such ashard-throwing righthander Zack Wheeler could come at a more reasonable price.A source who had discussed the matter with the Mets' front office said it was "better than 50-50" that Wheeler would be traded by the trade deadline, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.Wheeler has a 3-6 record and a 4.44 earned run average. However [url=http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-bour-jersey]http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-bour-jersey[/url] , he has a 3.67 ERA since June 1 and has struck out 106 batters in 107.1 innings in total. Wheeler's ability to come up with a big strikeout when it is needed most could make him a much-coveted commodity.Steven Matz could also be a trade target, but he is likely not as highly thought of as Wheeler.Additionally, Tom Verducci reported Friday night during the MLB Network's broadcast of the Mets' game against the New York Yankees that "several teams" are involved in talks for closer Jeurys Familia.Rosenthal went a bit further, tweeting Familia "was on the verge" of being traded, with a tweet from ESPN's Buster Olney suggesting the Oakland A'sas one of the teams to be seriously interested.
