Their playoff hopes on the line, the Detroit Tigers are taking a gamble.
All eight teams in the division series boosted themselves with midseason moves, adding the likes of Delmon Young, Jose Iglesias and Brian Wilson.
Jose Iglesias helped the Detroit Tigers move forward when their starting shortstop was suspended.
Avila said he has no idea what reaction Peralta’s return to Comerica Park will elicit from fans, but he hopes it will be a favorable one.
Nearly losing a game was bad enough. Nearly losing rookie shortstop Jose Iglesias was much, much worse.
The end date of the shortstop’s suspension is Sept. 26, and Peralta could start a rehab stint in about a week.
Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias left Wednesday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox with pain in both shins.
Thank you, José Iglesias. You’ve saved August for us.
Most of the time, defense is not pretty. Most of the time, defense is not noticed. With Jose Iglesias, the tables are turned.
At 23 years old, Jose Iglesias has officially made it big.
