So will Iglesias live up to Lou Whitaker’s legacy?
Many Tigers fans will wake up on Wednesday morning to the surprise that the Tigers have acquired shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox.
With Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta implicated in the Biogenesis scandal, the Detroit Tigers stand to lose their shortstop to a long suspension at any time.
“Our scouting reports have him as an All-Star shortstop,” Dombrowski said.
A few weeks ago, the Detroit Tigers general manager did not want to deal.
The move of Iglesias seems like insurance for Jhonny Peralta, who has been connected to the Biogenesis scandal and many believe will be suspended within the next few days.
