Iglesias (abdomen) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Friday. This will put an end to the shortstop's season since he was initially put on the 10-day DL with an abdominal strain in late August. With his contract set to expire at the end of the 2018 campaign, Iglesias could be wearing a different uniform come spring training. In a corresponding move, Pete Kozma had his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo.
Iglesias received a cortisone injection for his lower abdominal strain Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Iglesias was originally expected to return Sunday or Monday, but he's behind that timeline and will miss a few more days. Niko Goodrum suffered a leg contusion Wednesday, so Ronny Rodriguez is likely to continue to start at shortstop until Iglesias returns.
Iglesias (abdomen) is scheduled to see a core muscle/groin specialist Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Iglesias has been on the disabled list since Aug. 30 with an abdominal strain. He was expected to return Monday, but continued discomfort has prompted the Tigers to delay his return and send him in for additional tests. It's unclear when the shortstop will be cleared to rejoin the Tigers at this point, but a return no longer appears to be imminent. Ronny Rodriguez, who is starting at shortstop Monday, should continue to fill in for Iglesias.
Iglesias is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Earlier reports suggested the slick-fielding shortstop could return to action either Sunday or Monday, but considering Iglesias isn't on the lineup card for Sunday's series finale with St. Louis, Monday's series opener against Houston appears to be his return day. In the meantime, Ronny Rodriguez will pick up one more start at shortstop to replace him.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said Iglesias (abdomen) is expected to miss 10-to-14 days, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Iglesias landed on the disabled list Thursday with an abdominal strain. Fortunately, an MRI confirmed he isn't dealing with a tear and thus won't require surgery. Should his timetable hold, Iglesias will be back with the Tigers between Sept. 9 and Sept. 13.
