Iglesias went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI on Wednesday against the Cubs. Iglesias took Brandon Kintzler deep in the seventh inning to record his third home run of the season. It was his first homer since May 1, though he's recorded at least one hit in nine of his 11 starts for the month. That's helped him maintain a .295 average for the season, and his strong defense has kept him in the lineup for regular at-bats despite a crowded Reds' infield.
Iglesias went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's game against the Giants. Iglesias plated the first two runs of the game in the first inning on a single to center field. The 29-year-old has hit safely in four straight contests following Sunday's multi-hit day, and he's slashing .288/.326/.408 with two homers and 13 RBI through 37 games this season.
Iglesias went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, four RBI and two runs Monday in the Reds' 12-4 win over the Giants. The Reds signed Iglesias this offseason mainly for his excellence in the field, but the shortstop has been a pleasant surprise offensively of late, too. Dating back to April 21, Iglesias has delivered a .946 OPS while compiling eight multi-hit performances. Iglesias has also posted a .413 BABIP during that span, however, suggesting that some major regression at the plate will almost certainly be coming.
Iglesias is not starting Saturday against the Giants. Iglesias finds himself on the bench for the first time in a week and just the second time in the Reds' last 17 games. Known for his defense, Iglesias' bat has been good enough to keep him in the lineup on a regular basis, as his .308/.351/.429 slash line is good for a 102 wRC+, tied for the best mark of his career. Jose Peraza will slide over to shortstop in his absence, with Derek Dietrich entering the lineup at second base.
Iglesias went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Mets. Iglesias took Edwin Diaz deep in the ninth inning, which proved to be the game's only run. It was his second homer of the season, and he is now hitting .313 through 88 plate appearances. Iglesias continues to rack up plate appearances at shortstop and should see regular playing time at the position at least until Scooter Gennett (groin) returns to the field.
