(6/5/13) Mariners designated hitter Raul Ibanez hit his 11th home run in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.
Ibanez finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and four RBI and a double to go with the blast. Ibanez has struggled with contact and discipline all season -- he's hitting just .243 with a .280 on-base percentage -- but his power is as present as ever, and he's slugging .544 as a result.

(6/4/13) Mariners outfielder Raul Ibanez connected for his 10th home run during Monday's 4-2 win against the White Sox. It marked the 13th straight season Ibanez has managed at least 10 home runs.
Since May 4, Ibanez is batting .280 (21 for 75) with one triple, three doubles, eight home runs and 21 RBI in his last 20 games (19 starts). For the season, he's batting .227 with a .508 slugging percentage.
|Raul Ibanez hot as can be in May|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Mariners outfielder Raul Ibanez still is only batting .235 on the season -- that's how cold he was in April.
The veteran slugger has been ridiculously hot in May, however, and he kept that up on Friday in Cleveland. Ibanez went 3 for 5 in the game with his seventh home run.
He went deep in the sixth inning for a two-run blast. The two RBI gives him 19 on the year.
Ibanez has gone 11 for 28 (.393) in May with a double, triple, five homers and 14 RBI.
|Raul Ibanez's contributions behind him?|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/17/13) Mariners outfielder Raul Ibanez entered play Friday with the most RBI of any hitter in the past seven days, aided in large part by his four home runs in his last five games. It's been a good ride.
But it's nearing its end. With Franklin Gutierrez beginning a rehab assignment Thursday, the Mariners will soon have no place for Ibanez, slotting Michael Morse in left field, Gutierrez in center and Michael Saunders in right, Kendrys Morales at DH and Justin Smoak at first base.
Ibanez will still get occasional starts, but only when one of those five needs a rest and mostly just against right-handed pitchers. And obviously, you can't expect him to perform at this pace on those occasions.
Though he clearly still has pop at age 40, Ibanez's limited opportunities for at-bats make him rosterable only in deeper AL-only leagues. And chances are he's been owned in those formats from the beginning.

|In just 384 at-bats last season, Raul Ibanez managed 19 home runs, 62 RBI and even stole three bases. He will likely be remembered for his postseason heroics, where he hit three huge home runs and batted .318, but Ibanez was a very solid platoon member for New York in 2012, finishing the season with more home runs than Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Santana and Adrian Gonzalez. He is probably little more than a platoon/hot hand bat for the rest of his career, as it looks like he'll be in the mix for outfield and possible DH at-bats with the Mariners. The advantage to the platoon situation, though, is that it allows Ibanez to knock out home runs in favorable situations. While mainly single-league territory, Ibanez, 40, could provide some power for deeper mixed leagues, but there's no need to use a draft pick on him -- if he gets hot, he'll likely be there on the wire for the taking early in the season. Ibanez should be drafted in the late rounds in AL-only formats. (Updated 1/2/13)|
