Sources: Yanks looking at Ibanez, Hall

The New York Yankees are moving closer to completing their roster. The team is in serious discussions with two free agents, outfielder Raul Ibanez and utility man Bill Hall, according to major-league sources. Ibanez, a left-handed hitter who turns 40 on June 2, would serve primarily as a DH, filling the vacancy created by the retirement of Jorge Posada and trade of Jesus Montero...

Yankees and Raul Ibanez in Serious Talks

According to sources, Ibanez is willing to take less to play for the Yankees than he could make elsewhere. The 39-year-old batted .245/.289/.419 with 20 home runs and 84 RBI in 144 games last season for the Phillies.  Ibanez will fill the need for another bat to fill in as the part-time DH

Yanks may be closing in on Ibanez 

The Yankees appear to be zeroing in on Raul Ibanez as the extra bat that Joe Girardi was pitching for last week. The Yankees are seeking a left-handed hitter and other possibilities have included Eric Chavez and ex-Yankees Hideki Matsui and Johnny Damon.

Yankees and Ibanez get serious

Looks like the New York Yankees will be addressing their designated hitter situation sooner then later. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted this evening that the team is in serious talks with Raul Ibanez of the Philadelphia Phillies. If you remember just a few days ago I wrote about Joe Girardi’s desire for a hitter and how Ibanez would be the best option. So if this happens...

Rant of the day: the Yankees are at it again...and not in a good way

I read an article at today that the New York Yankees are looking for a hitter, preferably a leftie, and their top candidates are, drumroll please...Raul Ibanez, Hideki Matsui, and Johnny Damon.Wtf?Raul Ibanez is 39 years old. Hideki Matsui will be 38 this year. Johnny Damon just turned 38 a few months ago. Now, in Real Life, 38-39 is nothing to look twice at. It's...

New York Yankees to sign Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui or Raul Ibanez this week?

The New York Yankees are expected to sign a left handed designated hitter who could also serve as a platoon outfielder with Brett Gardner or Nick Swisher this season, and the final three candidates appear to be Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui and Raul Ibanez. One of those three players could sign by the end of this week, although a lot will depend on what their asking price...

The New York Yankees are considering adding a left-handed bat, and one of the three most prominent remaining free agents -- Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon or Hideki Matsui -- could be on the team within a week, according to a major league source.

Polishing a Turd with Raul, Johnny, and Hideki

The following post is being syndicated from The Yankee Analysts.There has been much ado about the Yankees designated hitter situation yesterday, with Buster Olney tweeting that the team was "in position to add" one of Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon, or Hideki Matsui within a week. Ken Rosenthal stoked the coals a bit (or, perhaps, took a book of matches from 7-Eleven), adding...
