Taschner DFA'd, Ibanez Delayed

Jack Taschner was voted off the island. The reality show, "The Pen" will no longer feature Tascher. He was designated for assignment to make room for Rodrigo Lopez, who had his contract purchased today. Also, Brett Myers was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Taschner called the Phillies a "class act organization" because they could of optioned him. Instead other teams can give him a chance.

Raul Ibanez's rehab assignment was delayed for the third day in a row. Ibanez was eligible to come off the disabled list today, however it is uncertain when he will return.

Ibanez says he feels "way better," but there is still a little discomfort. A rehab appearance is possible this Sunday, but he is scheduled to see team doctor Michael Ciccotti first.

The Phillies remain interested in Chien Ming Wang, but also have looked at Juan Cruz of the Royals. They also haven't quit on Erik Bedard, Roy Oswalt and Cliff Lee. They've also discussed Pedro Martinez.

In news around MLB, Scott Boras has hinted that first overall draft pick Stephen Strasburg could play in Japan if the Washington Nationals do not offer him enough money.
