Jose Iglesias’ glove was one of the main selling points in the Detroit Tigers’ recent trade for the shortstop. He showed off just how slick with the leather he is Monday night, making one of the defensive plays of the season against the Chicago White Sox.
Chicago catcher Josh Phegley blooped a broken-bat pop up over Doug Fister’s head, where Iglesias scooped it up barehanded and threw off-balance to first to nip Phegley. It was, quite simply, remarkable.

In the bottom of the 6th inning of the Tigers' 6-2 loss on Monday night, shortstop Jose Iglesias made a pretty great throw.

Even if the runner was safe, he was called out on principle.

In the sixth inning of Monday’s Tigers-White Sox tilt, White Sox catcher Josh Phegley hit a slow hopper over the head of Tigers pitcher Doug Fister into what should have been no-man’s land.

The 2013 American League Rookie of the Year is coming down to Wil Myers of the Tampa Bay Rays and Jose Iglesias of the Detroit Tigers.
