Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made it official on Friday and announced the signing of Raul Ibanez to a one-year contract.

CBS Sports had reported the deal to be worth $2.75 million and included incentives that could bump the total value to $5 million.

The 41-year-old Ibanez had a tremendous first half last season with the Seattle Mariners, batting .267 with 24 homers and 56 RBI. Those numbers took a severe dip after the All-Star break (.203/5/9).

Ibanez is best viewed as a designated hitter, but can still play left field or first base if necessary.

A career .276 hitter, Ibanez has registered 300 homers, 416 doubles and 1,181 RBI in 18 seasons.
