MLive.com’s Chris Iott posted a video highlight package of newly acquired Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox.
Even though it is just a short set of clips, it is clear Iglesias is an upgrade from Jhonny Peralta in range, quickness and playmaking ability. Many times throughout the package it looks like Iglesias will have to eat the ball, but is able to fire it to second or first for the out. Detroit looks as if they are going to get a major upgrade at shortstop when he arrives in Detroit Friday.
BEST OF MAXIM
Just when everyone thought the Tigers were done, they pulled a shocker and landed young star shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Red Sox. The acquisition came at a steep price though, as the Tigers gave up one of their top prospects in outfielder Avisail Garcia.
Jose Iglesias, traded to the Tigers Tuesday, tweeted out his farewell to Fenway today.
A big thank you to the @RedSox organization and all of #RedSoxNation for all the love and support these first years of my career. Los amo!

DETROIT -- Dave Dombrowski doesn't know what is going to happen to Jhonny Peralta.
With the trade deadline approaching, he decided he couldn't wait to find out.
In a major trade announced in the first moments of Wednesday morning, the Tigers acquired Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias as part of a three-way trade that saw highly rated outfield prospect Avisail Garcia go to the...
Just before 11:00 and less than two hours after they beat the Mariners to remain half a game behind the red-hot Rays in the AL East, the Red Sox dealt one of their most promising young players for an established Major League starter. Rumored to be on the move during the days and weeks leading up to the trade deadline, the White Sox have agreed in principle to trade one-time 19...
With Jhonny Peralta apparently headed for a lengthy suspension in the Biogenesis case, the Detroit Tigers reportedly acquired Boston infielder Jose Iglesias in a three-team trade on Tuesday night. The move, reported by several national baseball writers, will send Detroit outfield prospect Avisail Garcia to the White Sox, bring Iglesais to Detroit and move Jake Peavy to Boston.
After falling out of first place in the AL East for the second time in the course of a week, the Red Sox do get some schedule relief in the coming days and weeks. Beginning Tuesday, Boston plays 13 of its next 16 games against teams at or below .500.
On Tuesday, the Red Sox begin a three-game home set against the Seattle Mariners, a team whose best hitter in 2013 has been the 41...

DETROIT -- Detroit's shortstop of the future spent a couple hours being the second baseman of the present. Now, though, he's a third baseman.
He's also caught in a furor that he knew nothing about, through no fault of his own.
It has certainly been a strange welcome to the Tigers for Jose Iglesias. The Tigers traded for him late Tuesday...
A busy sports day in Detroit just got a busier as fans learned a valuable lesson of NEVER trusting what a general manager has to say.
Hours after Dave Dombrowski made it look as though Detroit wasn’t on the verge of any blockbuster deals or addressing an impending short stop dilemma, the Tigers did a total 180. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Tigers sent outfielder...
The Detroit Tigers guarded against the expected suspension of their
shortstop, Jhonny Peralta, by adding a gifted young replacement,
Jose Iglesias. Call it the Jake Peavy trade. Or call it Biogenesis
Trade I. Biogenesis Trade II is expected Wednesday.
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox now are considerably better positioned for both this season and next as a result of Peavy's arrival. The 32-year-old represents a solid mid-rotation starter who, in 80 innings this...
I’m sure I’m not the only baseball fan that feels this way, but the trade deadline is almost like Christmas in July (if you practice Christmas…insert your own personal holiday of choice if you don’t). Rumors are flying like crazy, and if your team is lucky, they get a new gift.
So far, there have been some big deals, some little deals, and some that haven’t happened. ...
61-45, 1st place, 2 games up on Cle.
What a week of baseball this has been.
1. Our Tigers have been red hot as of late, winning 9/10 and 5 in a row, and have lost ground on the 2nd place White Sox and 3rd place KC Royals. I’d say that the AL Central is En Fuego but the Indians and Royals have been beating up on the White Sox and Twins.
2. Then we have the quietest trade deadline...
