(Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images) BOSTON--  According to a Tweet from the Boston Red Sox, Red Sox infielder Jose Iglesias has been named the American League Rookie of the Month for June. The team tweeted out the following earlier today.   #RedSox INF Jose Iglesias named AL Rookie of the Month for June. Iggy batted .395 with 17 runs & 11 multi-hit games in month.

Iglesias has definitely started to come into his own. Last night was the perfec...
