Raul Ibanez: Reunites With Mariners

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Ibanez agreed to a one-year, $2.75 million deal with the Mariners on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Recommendation: Ibanez's big postseason with the Yankees last season proved the 40-year-old outfielder still has pop in his bat, albeit with eroding plate discipline and defensive skills. Ibanez will likely be optimized by the Mariners in a platoon role in the outfield with Jason Bay while also seeing at-bats among the team's rotation of designated hitters.
