According to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, the Mariners have spoken to Raul Ibanez's agent.

It would be Ibanez's third stint in Seattle if they wound up signing him. The 40-year-old slugged .492 against right-handed pitching in 2012 and probably piqued the interest of a few more clubs with his playoff exploits. The Yankees would like to bring him back.
