Just a few quick notes this early afternoon.

• The Yankees have talked to Raul Ibanez about returning as a platoon DH, but according to the New York Post, those conversations have not included any sort of negotiation, [2] and Ibanez would like to sign somewhere within “the next seven to 10 days.”

• Short-term Yankees third baseman Casey McGehee has signed in Japan, where he’ll once again be a teammate of Andruw Jones. McGehee is going to make $1.5 million, [3] and could add more with incentives.

• Speaking of short-term Yankees third basemen: Cody Ransom has signed a minor league deal with Padres. [4]

• Rich Harden might have made sense on a low-risk contract to compete for a spot this spring, but he’s signed a minor league deal with the Twins. [5]

• Another second-tier pitcher is off the market. Francisco Liriano has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pirates. [6]
