Jose Iglesias leading Tigers with bat, glove
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias has gotten off to a hot start in 2015. Iglesias has a 1.015 OPS and is hitting .436, with four stolen bases.
Not bad for a player who is best known for his glove work. "Wow," pitcher David Price said, per the Detroit Free Press. "He's the best shortstop I've ever played with, and probably ever seen. It's crazy. He's so smooth. He's a thrill to watch."

|(4/11/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who missed the 2014 season with fractures in both his legs, received a day off on Saturday against the Indians. He told reporters his legs are "100 percent" with "no pain," per the Detroit Free-Press.
"It's a long season," Iglesias said. "Brad decided to give me a day and I take it. It's still a long way to go.
"I'm really happy about that," Iglesias said. "Playing healthy is the best thing that can happen for me right now."
Iglesias is hitting .600 (9 for 15) with a double and an RBI through his first four games.
Tigers SS Jose Iglesias has four-hit outing during win
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias went 4 for 4 during Wednesday's 11-0 win against the Twins. He had one double, one walk and three runs.
"He's the type of guy, with his legs and just putting the ball in play, it often becomes a hit," manager Brad Ausmus said after the game, per MLive.com. "That helped him today."
Iglesias, who missed the 2014 season due to fractures in both shins, is off to a great start this season. He is batting .857 (6 for 7) with one double, one walk, two stolen bases and three runs in two games.
"I was never worried about him," Ausmus said. "If he got off to a slow start, he missed a year being out, I think he's fine. He got plenty of at-bats during spring training to get close to where he needs to be."
Tigers SS Jose Iglesias swipes two bases in season opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias played in his first regular season game Monday against the Twins for the first time since Sept. 29, 2013, after missing the 2014 season due to fractures in both his shins. Iglesias showed Monday he doesn't seem to be having any lingering issues.
Iglesias had two singles in three at-bats and stole two bases in a 4-0 win. Iglesias stole second base in the second inning and second base in the seventh inning. The first stolen base was off of starting pitcher Phil Hughes and catcher Kurt Suzuki. The second stolen base was off reliever J.R. Graham and Suzuki.
"As good as ever. 100 percent," he said following Monday's game, per the Detroit Free Press. "It was really fun today just to be on the field healthy and to finally play in a game. I'm 100 percent in every single aspect and I'm happy that I was able to help the team."
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.
|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.
