Ichiro Suzuki agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Marlins. From CBSSports.com:

The Marlins have agreed to terms with free-agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki on Friday, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms. Craig Mish of MLB Network Radio first reported the deal. According to Heyman, he'll receive $2 million in 2015.

Suzuki, 41, will serve as Miami's fourth outfielder, behind Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich.

Yu Darvish's elbow is fine, from MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan:

... "This offseason I was able to work on my strength program and my training is going well right now," Darvish said Friday while making a rare public appearance at the Rangers Awards Dinner in Dallas.

It was the first time that Darvish has spoken publicly since he was shut down at the end of the season with mild inflammation in his right elbow. His last start was on Aug. 9 against the Astros, and right now he is throwing off flat ground. Darvish won't go off a mound until the beginning of February, but so far everything has gone well.

"My elbow feels fine and I am able to throw on my throwing program," Darvish said.

... "He's right on schedule," Daniels said. "I think Darvish is very in tune with his body as much as anybody and knows how he's feeling. He's very confident. Like any of these guys, until they're out there you're always going to have some reservation, but that's the worrywart in me. From all the information we have, I'm encouraged. He's basically been cleared to do just about everything."

Yu Darvish's next MRI could be pushed back. From Fox Sports Southwest's Anthony Andro:

... There are no plans for Maddux to visit with Texas pitcher Yu Darvish while he's in Japan. Darvish was originally slated to be in Texas in the middle of the month for an MRI but that could be pushed back, which could possibly open the door for Maddux to see Darvish.

Meeting with Darvish wouldn't have mattered if Maddux wouldn't have reached a new deal with the Rangers. That happened last week though as Maddux will return for his seventh season.
