Tigers' Ausmus is expecting Jose Iglesias to be starting shortstop
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is confident shortstop Jose Iglesias, who missed all of the 2014 season due to stress fractures in both legs, will be able to return to his role as the team's everyday shortstop, per MLive.com.
"The short answer is yes, I'm under the impression he's ready (to play everyday). That being said, he still has to go out there and do it," Ausmus said. "We've got to get him out there and see if he can withstand a pounding. But as of right this second, we're under the impression he'll be healthy."
Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias adamant about being 100 percent

|(1/22/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who missed the 2014 season due to stress fractures in both shins, reiterated multiple times Thursday he will be ready for spring training, per the Detroit Free Press.
"I will be 100 percent for spring training," said Iglesias, who was cleared by doctors for all physical activity last week. "I feel great. I'm good to do everything and, obviously, I'm in a spot where I gotta be smart, but I'm cleared to do anything it takes to play baseball."
The only remaining hurdle for Iglesias will be to sprint at 100 percent.
"I'm close to it," he said. "I'm about 75-80 percent every time I run. I've been running, fielding, hitting, jumping and doing everything pain free and I'm excited -- excited – for 2015.
"I'm healthy now and I'm blessed to be in this situation now. I will be good for 2015."
Tigers' Bruce Rondon, Jose Iglesias considered good to go
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon and shortstop Jose Iglesias are good to go, according to the Detroit News.
Rondon is recovering from March Tommy John surgery, but is nearing a return. Iglesias missed all of last season due to a shin issue. General manager Dave Dombrowski said that although both players were healthy, the team would take it easy with them early in spring training.
Rondon posted a 3.45 ERA over 28 2/3 innings back in 2013. Iglesias hit .303/.349/.386 between Boston and Detroit.
Tigers' Jose Iglesias on track to full health for spring training
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/10/15) Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand told the Detroit News on Friday that shortstop Jose Iglesias, who missed the 2014 season due to stress fractures in both shins, is on target to return to full health. He's been working out steadily in his Miami home, taking ground balls and working on his hitting and running progression while being supervised by Rand.
"At this point, he's progressed exactly as we'd anticipated," Rand said. "Basically, it's a matter of getting him to spring training. And then, in spring training, breaking him in easily to find out if he'll be able to handle the everyday stress of playing.
"But nobody knows that (for certain) until you get to that point."
Tigers Iglesias on track for start of spring training
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/9/14) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias has begun working out and taking ground balls and is said to be ready for the beginning of spring training, Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski said Monday.
"Everything is positive so far," Dombrowski said. "The only thing he hasn't done full bore is sprinting on a regular basis on hard ground."
Iglesias was out the entire 2014 season due to stress fractures in both shins.
|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.
