Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) is a question mark this year while he deals with injured shin. Manager Brad Ausmus admitted that he's concerned about Iglesias and how his shins will hold up to playing the shortstop position.
Fantasy Tip: Iglesias is a glove-first player that doesn't offer fantasy baseball teams much with his stick. For that reason alone, he's more of a commodity in AL-only leagues, but his injury makes him a big risk even in those formats.

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is considered the most obvious option to hit second for the Tigers, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck, but Beck expects Kinsler to hit leadoff. Beck describes Tigers SS Jose Iglesias as the candidate with the best skill set to bat second. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus also mentioned Tigers C Alex Avila for consideration to hit second.
Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is one of the top second baseman in fantasy regardless of whether he hits leadoff or second for the Tigers. Iglesias would become an AL-only league consideration for fantasy teams if he were to win the job batting second, and Avila would move firmly into C2 territory in two-catcher formats if he hits second.
