Reports: Raul Ibanez agrees to 1-year deal with Seattle Mariners
Raul Ibanez is set to return to the team that drafted him in 1992.
According to the Associated Press, Ibanez has come to terms on a one-year deal worth $2.75 million with the Seattle Mariners.
The 40-year-old outfielder hit .240 with 19 home runs and 62 RBIs in 130 games with the Yankees last season. Ibanez’s biggest moment in pinstripes came in the postseason when he hit a pinch-hit home run in place of Alex Rodriguez to send Game 3 of the American League Division Series to extra innings.
