The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham and Nick Cafardo are reporting that Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki has been traded to the Yankees.

Abraham also said via Tweet: "Ichiro is not Ichiro any more. But he can probably be 85 percent of himself for 3 months. Nice trade by Cashman."

Reports indicated Yankees general manager gave up prospects for Suzuki, who is a former MVP and 10-time All-Star, but has struggled this summer and is a free agent at the end of the season.

Also from Abraham, "Smart move by Seattle. Frees them of having to invest further in Ichiro's decline."

The New York Post reports the Yankees sent minor league pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Fahrquar to Seattle for the 38-year-old Suzuki, who is hitting .261 this year.
