When the Red Sox shipped Jose Iglesias to the Tigers in the Jake Peavy deal, they knew they were losing one of their best defensive players. Well, if Detroit wasn’t sure what they were getting in the young shortstop, they found out Monday night.
The slick-fielding infielder dropped some jaws during the sixth inning of Monday night’s game against the White Sox. Josh Phegley hit a broken bat chopper up the middle that deflected off Tigers pitcher Doug Fister. Iglesias charged in, barehanded the grounder and tossed it to first while falling to the ground in time for the out.
