07:30 AM ET 12.31 | Yes, he'll turn 42 in June, and there are questions as to what Raul Ibanez can bring to the Angels as their primary DH. But to Ibanez, it's not even a question. "If I didn't know that I could perform at a high level, then I wouldn't even play the game," Ibanez said on a conference call Monday morning. "I definitely expect to contribute to this team and to be a part of continuing the winning tradition here." The Angels officially signed the 41-year-old outfielder/DH to a one-year contract on Friday. The two sides agreed to terms on Dec. 18 on a deal that will pay Ibanez a base salary of $2.75 million, with another $2.25 million in incentives. The 18-year veteran hit 29 homers with a .793 OPS last year for the Mariners, though his numbers took a sharp downturn in the second half.
