UPDATE (7/6/09 at 4:13 PM): Ibanez went 0-for-2 with a walk and run scored with Reading. He made only one play in left field. Health-wise, everything went okay for Ibanez. He could rehab in Lehigh Valley tomorrow.
Raul Ibanez’s rehab performance kept getting pushed back. It appears that he will finally rehab on Monday in Reading. If there are no setbacks, he will make three to four rehab appearances before returning to the Phillies.
If healthy, he could play in the All Star Game, but if not, the Phillies won’t push him. Right now, his focus is returning to the Phillies lineup.
“We’re still working to get back, and get back as soon as we can. There is a rehab game tomorrow, and that’s as far ahead as I’m thinking right now” Ibanez said.
