Ichiro Suzuki will act as bench coach in two games for the first time since taking an advisory position to the Seattle Mariners, manager Scott Servais said Thursday.

Ichiro will be on the bench as Servais will miss Friday and Saturday’s games against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in order to attend his daughter’s graduation ceremony at the University of Mississippi, where she’s getting a master’s in sports communication, according to mlb.com. Bench coach Manny Acta will take over as manager during the two games.
