Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shin) has significant injuries to both shins that are expected to keep him out at least until the All-Star break and could force him to miss most or all of the season, a source confirmed Saturday, March 15. The team has no clear replacement for Iglesias on their current roster. Utilitymen Steve Lombardozzi and Danny Worth and minor-leaguers Hernan Perez and Eugenio Suarez have been playing shortstop during Grapefruit League spring games while Iglesias has been sidelined.

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) will visit with a second specialist to figure out a fix for the stress reaction in his shins. Manager Brad Ausmus said the meeting isn't a positive sign that Iglesias will return soon. Iglesias received orthotics that added extra cushion under the feet last week, and he's since resumed workouts and taken batting practice. However, he has not done anything more than light jogging, suggesting he's not close to returning to games. Iglesias could be running out of time in order to be ready for opening day. INF Steve Lombardozzi has been playing semi-regularly at shortstop with Iglesias out the last few weeks, and he'd likely fill in if Iglesias has a day-to-day injury. If Iglesias needs to start on the disabled list, the Tigers could call up SSs Hernan Perez or Eugenio Suarez.
Fantasy Tip: Iglesias isn't highly sought after in fantasy leagues, because he's a defense-first player. This news surely will have very few folks willing to take him. If he opens on the DL, none of his replacements are worth looking into, either.
