According to several reports, Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez is on track to return to the lineup this weekend after missing 19 games with a groin injury.

Ibanez, 37, is hitting .312 with 22 home runs and 58 RBI in 62 games this season with his new club.

He will play his final rehab game tonight in Lehigh Valley before returning to the team tomorrow if nothing goes wrong.

With the Phillies looking like they are putting things together, Ibanez's return is great news. His bat will help the Phils score some more runs with Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino starting to get on-base.

Philadelphia concludes a four-game set with the Cincinnati Reds tonight, sending Jamie Moyer to the mound to face Micah Owings. The Phils are looking to take their second straight series.
