Ichiro now throwing batting practice as part of duties for Mariners

Ichiro, 44, transitioned into a role as special assistant to the chairman in May but has since taken on other tasks for the Mariners as well, including serving as an active bench coach for a couple of recent games while manager Scott Servais was away.
