Ibanez rehab delayed again

Tuesday, the Phillies were hopeful that Raul Ibanez would play in a rehab game yesterday. He did not, though he and the front office said they were just being careful. Yesterday, they were optimistic he would play today. He won't. Today, they say they are hopeful he will play tomorrow. Ibanez will work out with the Reading Phillies today.

Ibanez rehab delayed again

Tuesday, the Phillies were hopeful that Raul Ibanez would play in a rehab game yesterday.  He did not, though he and the front office said they were just being careful. Yesterday, they were optimistic he would play today. He won't.  Today, they say they are hopeful he will play tomorrow. Ibanez will work out with the Reading Phillies today.

I'm not saying he's experiencing setbacks, and he says he isn't.  But it is safe to say this isn't the best-case scenario. 

Also, Brett Myers had a follow-up exam with Dr. Bryan Kelly yesterday, the doc who performed his hip surgery. Myers was cleared to begin a throwing program in two weeks.
