New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki was mentioned in trade talks in a leak of internal information from the Houston Astros’ front office that made public 10 months worth of communications on an anonymous sharing website, multiple U.S. media outlets reported Tuesday.

Ichiro, 40, was among those mentioned in a conversation log that got out in which Yankees assistant general manager Billy Eppler attempts to hock Ichiro off on the Astros in the offseason. The leaks that appeared on the website Anonbin took place from June 2013 through March this year.
