Tigers | Jose Iglesias to miss 4-6 months

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) will miss four to six months with stress fractures in both of his legs. He will be re-evaluated in four months, and he'll be relegated to non-weight bearing exercises and upper-body conditioning for four to six months. The Tigers may decide to sign free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox) to replace Iglesias.

Fantasy Tip: This essentially means Iglesias is done for the year, and it might affect him for the rest of his career, sadly. If Detroit doesn't trade for Drew, Steve Lombardozzi may be the biggest beneficiary of playing time on the infield, but that's unlikely.
