Yankees, Ibanez Negotiating Extensively

The New York Yankees are negotiating "extensively" with Raul Ibanez, according to Ken Davidoff. Any deal will likely come after the A.J. Burnett trade is made official.

Joel Sherman noted earlier today that the Yankees are favoring Ibanez over other additions, like Johnny Damon, because they think he's "better on defense and better vs. RHP."

  • Twitter / @KenDavidoff - "Yankees have been negotiating extensively with reps for Raul Ibanez. An agreement seems very likely, after Burnett trade gets done."
  • Twitter / @Joelsherman1 - "Hear current Hal Steinbrenner #Yankees budget even after AJ trade has room only for Chavez or LH DH (likely Ibanez) not both. But if AJ passes #Pirates physical Sun, #Yankees execs plan to meet again to discuss if room can be made for both areas."
