Rehab Assignments and Stinkage

Raul Ibanez is scheduled to make his first rehab appearance tonight at Double-A Reading. He will play five innings. Ibanez could come off the disabled list this weekend, however Charlie Manuel said he would like to see Ibanez get eight to ten at-bats before returning.

Scott Eyre is also scheduled to pitch an inning at Reading for a rehab assignment. Eyre was supposed to pitch last night with the Gulf Coast Phillies, but the game was rained out.

Ryan Madson has struggled lately. In his last six appearances he is 0-2 with a 9.53 ERA (six earned runs in 5.2 innings). He has also blown three games in that span.

Charlie Manuel said not to worry about Jimmy Rollins. He said his timing was off and that "he'll be OK."
