Yankees Rumors: Mutual Interest Between Raul Ibanez, New York

The New York Yankees have expressed interest in re-signing postseason hero Raul Ibanez this winter, and the veteran has indicated that his top choice would be returning to the Bronx, reports Ken Davidoff of The New York Post.

Ibanez hopes the fun will continue. The 40-year-old, a free agent, said he intends to keep playing and his first choice is to re-sign with the Yankees.

Ibanez said it would be “fantastic” if he gets another opportunity to play for the Yankees.

Ibanez signed with the Yankees last February in what was basically expected to be a platoon/bench role. He went on to hit .240/.308/.453 with 19 doubles, three triples and 19 home runs over 384 at-bats. He also came up huge in the playoffs, hitting three pivotal home runs. The 40-year-old has hit .278/.340/.810 over 17 years in the majors.
