With the recent acquisitions of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran, the Yankees are shopping Ichiro, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
The Bronx Bombers currently have Ellsbury, Beltran, Suzuki, Brett Gardner, Vernon Wells and Alfonso Soriano all under contract in the outfield. GM Brian Cashman would love to deal Ichiro, but the Yankees would likely have to eat some of his $6.5 million salary. There's not much interest in Ichiro, though, and Brett Gardner appears much more likely to be dealt as a result.
