Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) continues to be sidelined because of shin splints and is receiving treatment for the injuries. Manager Brad Ausmus indicated Iglesias will need to return soon if he wants to be ready for the start of the season. "We're going to hit that point in Spring Training where there won't be enough games for him to get at-bats to be ready for the season," Ausmus said. "We've talked about it internally. We haven't set a firm date on that, but there is going to be a point where if he can't get on the field because of the injury, we're going to have to make a decision."

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shin) will be out of the lineup for a week due to a recurrence of a stress reaction in his shins. Iglesias has dealt with shin splints throughout his career, but the team isn't calling it that.
Fantasy Tip: Hello there, red flag. This is a condition that can reoccur unless adjustments are made, either by strengthening his legs or being fitted for orthotics in his cleats. With as much running as an everyday player does, this could linger and cause slumps or frequent off days. Monitor this throughout the spring.
