Iglesias is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays. Iglesias will hit the pine following a string of eight straight starts, during which he went 11-for-28 (.393 average), but with only one run and two RBI. Dixon Machado will step in to man shortstop in the series finale.
Iglesias is out of the lineup Thursday against the Angels. Iglesias made his ninth start in a row in Wednesday evening's contest, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout for his second hitless game in the last three. He'll take a seat for the series finale, giving way to Dixon Machado at shortstop.
Iglesias went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and two runs during Saturday's win over the White Sox. It was the second consecutive three-hit game and third in five outings for Iglesias. However, with a .255/.281/.385 slash line, his fantasy value remains limited. The shortstop is a sneaky flier in daily contests against southpaws, though. Iglesias owns a respectable .296/.353/.427 slash line against lefties dating back to the 2015 season.
Iglesias went 3-for-4 with two runs in Monday's 10-7 win over the Royals. The light-hitting shortstop offered some nice production out of the nine-hole, posting his third multi-hit effort over the last six games in the process. Iglesias hasn't done much offensively this season, but he's now hitting .321 with four doubles, a home run, four RBI and five runs in the 29 plate appearances encompassing his last six contests.
Iglesias is starting at shortstop and batting ninth Sunday against the White Sox. Iglesias slotted in as the Tigers' leadoff hitter in their first two games without Ian Kinsler (hamstring), but manager Brad Ausmus has since settled on Andrew Romine as the team's table setter. With Iglesias now back at the bottom of the order, his opportunities to produce runs and steal bases are expected to take a hit.
