Raul Ibanez, Angels nearing deal
Multiple reports said the deal is for a $2.75 million base salary and includes incentives that could increase the payout to $5 million. It is expected to be complete when Ibanez passes a physical exam.
Ibanez is a career .276 hitter with 300 home runs in 18 seasons with Seattle, Kansas City, Philadelphia and the New York Yankees. He hit 29 home runs for the Mariners in 2013 but batted only .203 with five homers after the All-Star break.
