Tigers' Ausmus not concerned about SS Jose Iglesias
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is struggling at the plate with a batting average of .091 this spring. Manager Brad Ausmus is not worried about the infielder.
"He hasn't swung the bat like his numbers. He's swung the bat much better," Ausmus said. "I'm not overly concerned. I'm not concerned at all, actually."
Ausmus attributed his lack of success at the plate to bad luck.
"He's struck out, what, twice in 30 at-bats?" Ausmus said. "Somewhere there's bad luck involved. If you're putting the ball in play that much and you're not getting hits, there's a little bit of bad luck involved. He's not a .100 hitter."
After singling on Wednesday, Iglesias broke a string of 23 at-bats without a hit. He is now 3 for 33 during the spring.
Tigers' Ausmus getting comfortable with playing Iglesias on regular basis

|(3/19/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said shortstop Jose Iglesias will play complete back-to-back games at shortstop in the near future, per the Detroit Free Press. The Tigers have been cautious with Iglesias this spring after he missed the 2014 season due to fractures in both of his shins.
"I'm getting more and more comfortable with his ability to play on a more regular basis," Ausmus said of Iglesias.
Iglesias is batting .095 (2 for 21) with two runs, one doubles, three walks, two strikeouts and one stolen base in eight spring games.

|(3/9/15) The Tigers will be getting back two injured players.
Infielder Jose Iglesias, who was hit in the shin by a batting practice line drive on Sunday, will play on Tuesday, according to Tigers manager Brad Ausmus.
Pitcher Bruce Rondon, recovering from Tommy John surgery, has been cleared for game action and will pitch in a split-squad game on Thursday, Ausmus said.
Jose Iglesias hit by batted ball during Tigers' BP
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Tigers infielder Jose Iglesias was scheduled to return to the lineup on Sunday after missing a game with a shin contusion.
However, Iglesias was hit by J.D. Martinez's line drive during batting practice and had to be helped from the field.
Iglesias was scratched from the game due to a shin contusion. The team announced that X-rays were negative, and Iglesias is day-to-day.
Sunday afternoon, Iglesias told Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press that his shin felt better than earlier, but it was still swollen and a little painful to walk.
|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.
