Tigers | Jose Iglesias could miss entire season

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) is expected to be out at least until the All-Star break with significant injuries to both of his shins. He could wind up missing the entire season, according to a baseball source. INFs Steve Lombardozzi, Danny Worth, Hernan Perez and Eugenio Suarez have been playing shortstop in spring games, but the team doesn't have a clear replacement on roster. Free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox) and Seattle Mariners SS Nick Franklin could be options if Detroit decides to look outside the organization.

Fantasy Tip: Terrible news for Iglesias here. Fortunately for fantasy players, he likely was left undrafted in mixed leagues, because he's a defense-first player and isn't heralded for his skills with the bat. Drew seems like a real possibility, so if you could use an upgrade at shortstop and he wasn't drafted in your league, you might want to think about scooping him up.
