Raul Ibanez Could Sign With Angels

5:15pm: The Angels are talking with Ibanez but there's no deal yet, tweets Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.  GM Jerry Dipoto has said that the Halos aren't closing in on a deal with anyone.

5:01pm: Raul Ibanez appears headed for a deal with the Angels, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com (on Twitter).  It would seem that Ibanez signing with the Halos is a ripple effect of the Corey Hart signing and the Mark Trumbo trade, Stark adds.

Ibanez, 41, has picked up interest from the Yankees, Rockies, Braves, Mariners, and Rangers this offseason.  The Bombers didn't see re-signing the veteran as a top priority, however.  

The veteran slashed .242/.306/.487 in 496 plate appearances for Seattle last season.  Over the course of 18 big league seasons, Ibanez has slashed .276/.338/.471.  Ibanez is represented by ACES, as shown in the MLBTR Agency Database.
