Raul Ibanez – Former Player

A fan favorite from the 2009 National League championship squad Raul Ibanez was the runner-up in the Tampa Bay Rays manager search a couple of years ago. Ibanez is a somewhat younger voice for a young team, although he was gone before Galvis and Hernandez arrived.

Ibanez recently put his Philadelphia-area house on the market and has a young family. He’s certainly looking to settle down and find a job, whether it’s in the media or the dugout.
