Tigers SS Jose Iglesias leaves with knee injury on Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Astros with an apparent knee injury. The team later confirmed Iglesias suffered a knee contusion and is day to day with the injury.
Iglesias banged knees with Houston first baseman Chris Carter in the third inning, but was able to remain in the game. Then in the fifth, after sliding into second, the trainers came out to check on Iglesias and he could not continue.
Iglesias was 2 for 2 with a run scored before leaving the game.

Shortstop Jose Iglesias wins it in extras for the Tigers on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias made his only hit of the day count, as he drove in the game-winning run in Saturday's 10-inning victory over the Cardinals. Iglesias finished the day 1 for 5, but his RBI single in the 10th was the only one that mattered at the end of the day.
Despite being bothered by a sore groin over the past few days, Iglesias is currently riding a seven-game hit streak. During the streak, the slick-fielding shortstop is 9 for 26 with three RBI. He's batting a very impressive .350 overall this season.
Tigers' Jose Iglesias returns to lineup Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is back in the starting lineup and batting eighth in Tuesday's game against the Twins.
Iglesias hasn't played since Wednesday while battling a groin injury, and manager Brad Ausmus did say that the shortstop's lineup spot isn't set in stone, as he needs to run on the field to receive final clearance, MLive.com reports. Iglesias has hit .349/.400/.482 with one home run, three RBI and five stolen bases in 83 at-bats.
The Tigers are favorites (-129) against the Twins at home Tuesday.
Tigers' Jose Iglesias out of lineup Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.
Iglesias is battling a sore groin, which has allowed him to make just one start this week. He has hit .349/.400/.482 with one home run, three RBI and five stolen bases in 83 at-bats. Andrew Romine draws the start in his place, batting ninth.
The Tigers are favorites (-150) at home against the Royals Saturday.
|2014 summary: The Tigers acquired Jose Iglesias in July 2013 in a three-way deal with the Red Sox and White Sox, and he served as their starting shortstop down the stretch that season. Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season due to stress fractures in both shins.|
Playing time status: Iglesias is expected to resume his duties as the Tigers' regular shortstop. He is on track to be ready for spring training.
2015 outlook: Iglesias was never an offensive powerhouse to begin with, and after a year away from game action, one has to wonder if he may get off to a slow start. He is an extreme ground ball hitter whose best chances to provide value are though batting average and stolen bases, and he doesn't have a consistent track record of providing either. Leave Iglesias for your AL-only leagues.
