Ibarra is a Lincoln fan favorite and is back with the Saltdogs for his fourth consecutive year. He sits fifth all-time in ‘Dogs history with 122 walks and continues to charge his way up the franchise’s all-time offensive leaderboards. His contract was originally purchased by the Minnesota Twins from the ‘Dogs on June 9, 2016 – and he got his first crack at affiliated baseball. A former LSU Tiger, Ibarra had a career year in 2018 when he posted a .932 OPS with 20 homers and 63 RBI. He had a career-best 13-game hitting streak and his 20 homers were 3rd-most in the American Association.
