Raul Ibanez, Phillies agree to a 3-year Deal

Former Seattle Mariners OF Raul Ibanez, 36, and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a 3-year, $30 million contract to be the Phillies every day left fielder. Ibanez hit .293 this past season, with 23 homers, 110 RBIs, a .358 on-base percentage and a .472 slugging percentage. Ibanez is a hard-nosed player that should fit in with the Phillies faithful. This likely means the Phillies will not go after their former OF Pat Burrell in free agency.
