"He keeps himself in great condition, he's willing to accept any role at this point in his career, obviously there's a little bit of a nostalgia fringe benefit I think to him coming back, but I think it's more sort of a short-term fix", Crasnick said of Ichiro.

Gamel hit.275 with 11 home runs and 59 RBIs in 134 games last season for Seattle. Heredia recently made his spring debut and has had a couple of at-bats, but he's more of a depth piece and fourth outfielder than an everyday option (though he could handle left field on a short-term basis with Gamel out).
