Having already seen Russell Martin and Eric Chavez sign elsewhere, the Yankees could next lose Raul Ibanez to a more interested suitor. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners, Phillies and Rangers are interested in the 40-year-old.
According to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, Ibanez would prefer to remain with the Yankees, but he’s growing a bit antsy since they’ve been slow to move. Ibanez already intends to retire to Seattle, so rejoining the Mariners might be attractive to him.
If Ibanez returned to Seattle, it’d be his third stint with the team. He also played for the Phillies from 2009-11. Ibanez hit .240/.308/.453 with 19 homers and 62 RBI in 384 at-bats for the Yankees last season. He also contributed three memorable homers in the postseason.
