The reigning World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies signed outfielder Raul Ibanez to a three-year, $30-million contract in mid-December. He will replace right-handed slugger Pat Burrell in left field. Ibanez, a left-handed power hitter, has averaged 22 home runs and 97 RBIs a season since 2002, and the last three years he has averaged 112 RBIs.
