Jose Iglesias 'doing well' in recovery from shin injuries


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is "doing well" as he continues to rest and let the stress fractures heal in his shins, agent Scott Boras told MLB.com Monday.

"I was just down to see him a week ago [in Miami], and he’s doing well," Boras said. "The doctor reports are good. He’s going back in a month to get a final x-ray. His medication and everything seem to be working well, so we’ve gotten very, very good reports. He’s obviously ready to go, as you can imagine, so he’s looking forward to it."

Iglesias is due to miss the remainder of the year to allow the injury to heal properly, and once it does, he isn't expected to be at risk of a recurrence of the injury, Boras said. "The recurrence part, we’re told, once it’s healed, we’re fine. The problem is, because he was playing so much, he just never had a chance to heal."

Report: Jose Iglesias out for most of season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
