Ichiro Suzuki’s pursuit of a third American League batting title is going to come up short this season, in part because the man he’s chasing won’t be playing.

Detroit manager Jim Leyland said Magglio Ordonez, who’s batting .360, won’t play on Saturday.

That’s going to make it impossible for Ichiro, who’s at .350, to catch Ordonez no matter what Ichiro does in the final two games.
