Outfielder Ibanez Returns to Seattle From Yankees, MLB.com Says

Dec. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Raul Ibanez, who hit strategic home runs in the New York Yankees’ postseason games, has agreed to join the Seattle Mariners for the third time, MLB.com reported, citing a person familiar with the one-year deal.

The Mariners have to make a move on the 40-man Major League Baseball team’s roster before they can confirm the contract with Ibanez, MLB.com said.

Ibanez, 40, played for Seattle from 1996-2000 and 2004-08. Last season as a Yankee, he hit .240 with 19 home runs and 62 runs batted in.

Ibanez batted .318 with three home runs in the Yankees’ eight playoff games last season. In Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles, he tied the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning, and won it with a walk-off homer in the 12th.

Ibanez has a career batting average of .278 with 271 home runs and 1,116 RBIs in 1,947 games over 17 years.
