The SportsXchange

Veteran Raul Ibanez reached agreement on a one-year, $2.75 million contaract with the Los Angeles Angels, according to reports on Wednesday.

The 41-year-old hit 29 home runs and had a .242 batting average with 65 RBIs in 124 games last season for the Seattle Mariners. But 24 of the homers came in the first half of the season.

Ibanez is expected to fill a left-handed designated hitter role with the Angels, but he also can play first base and the outfield.

The Baltimore Orioles were reported to be interested in Ibanez, who has hit 300 home runs during an 18-year career with the Mariners, Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees.
