Japan’s Kawasaki only interested in Mariners

Japanese shortstop Munenori Kawasaki aims to make the move to the Major Leagues, and would like to join his countryman and former teammate Ichiro Suzuki in Seattle.

The 30-year-old Kawasaki said at a news conference on Thursday that he is considering making the transition to America, but only if it’s with the Mariners. He said he would decline any offers from other clubs.

Kawasaki suggested in the past that he would be willing to accept a Minor League deal and would be flexible in regard to switching positions.
