Ibanez Named NL Player of the Week
He earned National League Player of the Week honors after he led the Majors with 26 total bases last week.
Ibanez also tied for the league lead with 12 RBIs and nine runs scored, and tied for second in the league with four home runs and 13 hits. He hit .481 (13 for 27) with a .963 slugging percentage and a .576 on-base percentage.
Ibanez is hitting .357 with 13 homers and 35 RBIs this season. He ranks ninth in baseball in average, second in homers, fourth in RBIs, first in slugging percentage (.714) and 15th in on-base percentage.
Infielder Miguel Cairo, who the Phillies designated for assignment after Friday’s game in Washington, has accepted his minor league assignment, although it is unclear when he will join Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Cairo had to accept the assignment as part of his contract.
