Why Ibanez was out of the lineup

Leftfielder Raul Ibanez, who started play Sunday leading the league in RBI runs scored and tied for the top spot in home runs, didn’t play even though the Phillies were facing a tough righthanded pitcher in Boston’s Josh Beckett.

It turns out that Ibanez recently changed shoes and that resulted in some soreness in his Achilles.

“It’s fine,” he said, adding that he expects to be back in the lineup when the Phillies play Toronto on Tuesday night. “It’s feeling a lot better. It’s really nothing at all.”
