Ichiro O.K.After Tampa Crash

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is fine and has no soreness one day after being involved in a traffic accident.

Suzuki was on his way home after Saturday’s spring training game against Detroit when the accident occurred a few miles from Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.

Suzuki said on Sunday his SUV was totaled in the accident. He had a green light when he was hit by another vehicle in an intersection. The driver of the second vehicle was cited by police. Suzuki says he’s grateful that no one was hurt in the incident.

New York manager Joe Girardi expects Suzuki to play in Tuesday night’s game against Atlanta. The Yankees are off on Monday.
