Raul Ibanez has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Mariners.— Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) December 23, 2012
After one year of ups and downs, the Raul Ibanez experience is over in the Bronx. According to WFAN's Sweeny Murti, he will be signing a one-year deal with his original team, the Seattle Mariners. It will be his third stint with the M's, but it's hard to imagine this one ending well since Safeco's enormous and he will likely need to play the outfield with the DH spot already crowded by the likes of Kendrys Morales. According to Daniel Barbarisi, the deal is $2.75 million, with a possible $1.25 million in bonuses. Never forget, kids.
