Philly Baseball Notes: Feb. 7th

PBR - CBS Radio and the Phillies agreed to a multi-year partnership that will allow games to be broadcasted simultaneously on 1210 WPHT and 94WIP, it was announced Monday.

The partnership begins later this month when Spring Training begins. The first contest on 94WIP will be the Phils Grapefruit League opener against the Yankees on March 3. Here is the full release.

- The Yankees are believed to be in  "serious discussions" with former Phillies outfielder Raul Ibanez. New York has been searching for a left-handed hitter to platoon with Andruw Jones as a designated hitter. Ibanez will turn 40 in June and is likely looking at a one-year deal.

- MLB.com released several of their Top 20 Organizational Prospect lists on Monday and pitcher Trevor May was ranked as the Phillies best prospect. May (RHP) pitched at Clearwater last season and held opponents to a .221 average. He struck out 208 over 151 1/3 innings while allowing just 67 walks.

11 days until pitchers and catchers report.
