According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Mariners have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent outfielder Raul Ibanez.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Ibanez, who hit .240/.308/.453 with 19 homers and 62 RBI for the Yankees in 2012, is likely to serve as the M's starting left fielder against right-handed pitching and a part-time DH. This will be his third tour of duty with Seattle, where he played from 1996-2000 and again from 2004-2008. He was originally drafted by the M's.
