Tigers SS Jose Iglesias does some on-field work Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who used an Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill on Tuesday, finally took to the field on Friday for some baserunning and other workouts, per MLive.com. The 25-year-old shortstop missed all of last season due to fractures in both of his shins.

"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."


Alter-G treadmill for Cabrera, Iglesias arrives at Tigers' camp


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) The Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill arrived at Tigers' camp on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Both Miguel Cabrera and Jose Iglesias will use the treadmill in order to rehab their injuries. The machine allows the players to run at a reduced weight, decreasing the stress they will put on their legs during workouts. 

Both Cabrera and Iglesias are hoping to be ready for the start of the season. 


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.

Ausmus added Jose Iglesias could also work into the mix, but he doesn't see Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez or Nick Castellanos as options 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 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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) 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."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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."

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.

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."
