FOX DetroitNew Tiger Jose Iglesias met the Detroit media today before tonight's game against the Chicago White Sox. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski commented on Iglesias and the teams's shortstop situation, "He's [IGLESIAS] a shortstop for the future of our organization. Jhonny Peralta is our shortstop now. I know the natural question is, 'What does that mean for Peralta?' and right now, under these circumstances, the frank reality is I do not know. I also think that the more we talk about our scenario, if there's a lengthy suspension in which Jhonny does not play -- and I do not know where that stands -- we feel that we are now very protected with somebody we like a great deal."

23-year-old Jose Iglesias joins the Tigers in case of a Jhonny Peralta suspension.
It had been talked about all year. The Detroit Tigers needed to amp up their bullpen before the trade deadline. So they did that by sending 19-year-old Single-A prospect Danry Vasquez to Houston for reliever Jose Veras.
General Manager Dave Dombrowski had to act quickly when he heard it was likely...
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...
Louis Rodman Whitaker Jr., a.k.a. Sweet Lou, was a mainstay at second base for the Detroit Tigers for 18-plus seasons.
He and his keystone counterpart, shortstop Alan Trammell, hold the record as the longest running double-play combination in major-league history.
Whitaker won Rookie of the Year in 1978, three Gold Gloves and four Silver Sluggers. He was also a four-time All-Star...
Many people were surprised to see that Jose Iglesias was part of the late Tuesday trade that brought Jake Peavy to Boston. Iglesias was probably one of them.
Iglesias had made Boston his home in recent weeks, solidifying his spot on the major league roster with sterling play at third base. But, with the Red Sox having depth at shortstop and third base in the organization — and...
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!

The Red Sox will host Iglesias and the Tigers for a three-game series beginning...
After the Tigers acquired Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox early Wednesday morning, many fans were wondering what exactly the Tigers were getting in return for giving up one of their top prospects. How good is Iglesias's defense? Can he keep hitting, or will he hit enough? Get the full scouting report here.
The Boston Red Sox have recalled third baseman Brock Holt after trading Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers.
Holt was in the starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Seattle Mariners. He hit in Iglesias' usual ninth spot and played his position.
Iglesias was part of a three-team, seven-player trade on Tuesday that sent right-hander Jake Peavy to the Red Sox from the Chicago...
In his first game with the Detroit Tigers, Jose Iglesias is replacing Miguel Cabrera, not Jhonny Peralta.
Iglesias is starting at third base Friday night against the Chicago White Sox. Cabrera is out for a second straight game - he also missed Wednesday's game against Washington with a strained lower abdomen.
Iglesias could soon take over at shortstop for Peralta, who faces...
I’ll admit it: I was one of those people howling in rage and sadness when I heard Jose Iglesias was getting shipped off to the Tigers. I didn’t want Peavy, and I didn’t want to lose Iglesias. Late last night, I didn’t immediately see the wisdom of Ben Cherington’s latest move.
Though I am still somewhat sad to see Iglesias go, I’m on board with the Jake Peavy trade...
Some of the Boston Red Sox fans had mixed reactions when the team traded Jose Iglesias in the three-way trade with the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox to quire Jake Peavy. There was a reason the Sox traded away a potential future gold glove award winning in Iglesias and his name is Xander Bogaerts. Bogaerts is one of the best young shortstop prospects in all of baseball as...
BOSTON – The Red Sox face a dilemma, albeit a good one.
Now that infielder Jose Iglesias has been shipped to the Tigers as part of the Jake Peavy deal, the Red Sox must decide who to turn to as their starting third baseman.
Brock Holt was the first infielder called up Wednesday, and he will serve in a platoon alongside Brandon Snyder for the time being. But that situation might...

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...
The Red Sox front office is smart. They have a significant amount of resources, and they use them well. In the trade announced late Tuesday night, in which they sent Jose Iglesias to Detroit in a three-way deal for Jake Peavy, Boston used those resources well.
Within a very deep farm system, the Red Sox have a strength at shortstop. Jose Iglesias was producing well in...
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...
