Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias missed both of the team's weekend contests as he continues to deal with soreness in his left elbow. Prior to yesterday's game, manager Jim Leyland told reporters -- including Chris Iseman of MLB.com -- that Iglesias couldn't bend his arm, indicating that the shortstop could be sidelined into this week. Iglesias' ailment is stemming from the ninth inning of Friday night's game when he was hit on the left elbow by a pitch from David Aardsma. He remained in the game, but he wasn't sure how effective he would have been if he had to field a ground ball. Fortunately, none were hit his way. Iglesias was replaced by Ramon Santiago at short Saturday and Sunday. He's been icing his elbow and receiving treatment throughout the weekend, but he continues to experience swelling and soreness. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined as a result of the injury, as it will impact him both in the field and at the plate. The Tigers acquired Iglesias to replace shortstop Jhonny Peralta, both this season and potentially moving forward. After showing improvement at the plate over the first half of the season in Boston, Iglesias has been just so-so in Detroit, hitting .286/.333/.357 over 76 plate appearances. On the season, the 23-year-old has hit .319/.366/.396 with 16 extra-base hits over 310 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
