According to George A. King III of the New York Post, the Mariners have "serious interest'' in signing Raul Ibanez.

The Yankees have also been talking with Ibanez, but have yet to make any progress on a deal. In Seattle, Ibanez would likely force Jesus Montero into a full-time role at catcher. The 40-year-old has also been linked to the Rangers and Phillies so far this offseason.
