Raul Ibanez Proving to be Nice Pickup

Raul Ibanez has been a nice addition to the Yankee offense through the early part of the season

With all of the injuries that have nagged the Yankee organization early this season, it’s obviously resulted in a call for immediate help from the bench, as well as aid from the farm system.
