(3/5/14) Tigers infielder Jose Iglesias was able to play catch Wednesday, according to the Detroit News.

|Jose Iglesias feeling better but doesn't have timetable for return |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/4/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmas said Tuesday that while shortstop Jose Iglesias is feeling better, there is no indication when he will get back on the field as he continues to recover from shin splints, MLB.com reports.
"We're trying not only to get rid of the pain, but also minimize the chances of it returning," Ausmus said.
The team will wait until Iglesias is fully healthy before letting him resume baseball activities.
|After finishing with a .303 batting average last season, Jose Iglesias may have changed some perceptions of him as an all-glove, no-hit shortstop. Though he is not a power or stolen base threat, owners could be tempted to draft Iglesias for the batting average, but all that will bring is a deep sense of buyer's remorse. Iglesias padded his average with a ridiculously hot start, batting .451 over his first 25 games. He started to cool off weeks in advance of his late July trade from the Red Sox to the Tigers, as he hit .257 from June 15 forward. That's the version of Iglesias owners should expect in 2014. Because his defense will provide him with regular at-bats, Iglesias does have Fantasy value, but only for owners in AL-only leagues.
