Tigers' Ausmus not concerned about SS Jose Iglesias


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) 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.

"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.

Tigers SS Jose Iglesias exits Friday's game due to shin contusion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) The Tigers front office and coaching staff probably held their breath for a bit when shortstop Jose Iglesias left Friday's spring game against the Mets with a right shin contusion, seeing how Iglesias missed all of the 2014 season with fractures in both of his shins.

However, it doesn't appear Iglesias suffered a major injury or setback, as the Tigers said his injury is not related to last year's injuries.

"I slid too late and hit it in the wrong spot, but I'll be fine," he said, per the Detroit Free Press.

Iglesias was 1 for 2 with one run, one RBI and one stolen base before leaving Friday's game -- his second appearance this spring.

Tigers' Jose Iglesias to see action on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias will play on Wednesday against the Orioles, according to MLB.com.

Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season due to a shin injury. He'll be eased into action this spring in order to make sure he can handle the workload of regular playing time. Iglesias is expected to play three innings on Wednesday. Iglesias was able to play one inning on Monday.

While he wants to receive a lot of playing time, Iglesias understands the situation. "I would love to play in every single game," he said, "but I've got to be smart about it and take it step by step."

The 25-year-old hit .303 over 350 at-bats back in 2013.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"It's fun," Iglesias said. "It's baseball. Eventually I'm going to get my rhythm back when I get some more games in, but otherwise it's a great feeling to be back out there. Just to be in the uniform is amazing."

Tigers SS Jose Iglesias does some on-field work Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"We ran bases today, then he took grounders, did the fundamental and he hit," manager Brad Ausmus said. "When he got done hitting, I sent him inside. I didn't want him standing out in the outfield shagging. I don't want to say that's going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back, but any little bit of time we can get him off his feet early helps. So I sent him in about 10 minutes early."

Avila, Gose among options to bat second for Tigers vs. RHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday he is "seriously considering" batting catcher Alex Avila second in the order against right-handed pitchers, per MLive.com. Anthony Gose appears to be the other main option, but Gose could also lead off, which would allow Ian Kinsler to bat second.

Tigers' Jose Iglesias feeling 'free and pain-free'


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is feeling "free and pain-free" heading into the season, according to MLB.com.

The 25-year-old shortstop missed all of last season due to fractures in both of his shins, but is ready to contribute in 2015. "I want to make sure everybody knows I'm here," Iglesias said. "I've been gone too long."

Iglesias still isn't 100 percent, though he's close. "I'm about 85-90 percent [speed] still," he said. "Like I said, I don't want to rush it." The club will have Iglesias run on an Alter-G treadmill in order to regulate how much weight he puts on his feet. 

Manager Brad Ausmus said he'll be cautious with Iglesias throughout camp. "I'm just concerned more about the long haul than I am some specific incident happening," Ausmus said. "I'm just worried this might sneak back up on us over the course of a few months if we don't pay attention to it."

Iglesias hit .303/.349/.386 over 350 at-bats back in 2013.

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."

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 activate Jose Iglesias, Bruce Rondon from 60-day DL


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Dombrowski: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias should return as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski believes shortstop Jose Iglesias is talented enough to regain the starting spot in 2015 that he lost this year to injury.

Dombrowski told MLive.com that he didn't want to "anoint" Iglesias as the starter because Brad Ausmus and his coaching staff deserves to make that determination after seeing him perform in spring training. But he added that the medical prognosis looks good.

"The doctors tell me he'll be fine," Dombrowski said. "The doctors tell me he's going to be ready for spring training."

There would appear to be no strong candidate to compete with Iglesias if he picks up where he left off in 2013, when he batted .303 and played sterling defense. They used several players at shortstop, none of whom performed particularly well.
