Veteran outfielder Ichiro Suzuki has signed a one-year contract with his former club, the Seattle Mariners, the American League team announced Wednesday.

Under the $750,000 deal, the 44-year-old will again wear No. 51 for Seattle. He can earn an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses.

"I want to be able to help the Seattle Mariners," Ichiro said at a news conference. "I want to give it all — everything that I've gained, everything that I've done in my career. I want to just give it all right here in Seattle."
