  • Yanks interested in Ibanez has hitting coach
    Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees are interested in talking to Raul Ibanez about their vacant hitting coach job.

    Advice: Ibanez hasn't said he's definitely retiring, but he's 42 and coming off a terrible season. Even if he does officially hang it up, it's not clear whether he'd be interested in a coaching job, though it wouldn't be a surprise. Ibanez played for the Yankees in 2012. Rotoworld.com

  • Matsuzaka to get big offer to return to Japan
    Sports Hochi reports that the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks plan to offer Daisuke Matsuzaka a four-year contract worth about $3.58 million per season.

    Advice: He'd be crazy to turn that kind of money down, as Matsuzaka would have to take a minor league deal from a major league club. The right-hander has said previously that he'd be open to returning to Japan if they give him a chance to start. It would be shocking if Matsuzaka turns the offer down. Rotoworld.com

    Athletics activated 1B/OF Kyle Blanks from the 60-day disabled list.

He hit .309/.409/.436 when healthy, but Blanks still might be non-tendered this offseason in his final year of arbitration eligibility. Rotoworld.com
