Manager Ron Gardenhire said Iglesias will likely miss "a couple of days" to let his hand heal, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Iglesias suffered a right thumb bruise during Tuesday's game, and he apparently tweaked the injury during Wednesday's contest. He'll get some time off to allow the injury to fully heal up, though the 28-year-old will be available off the bench if absolutely needed.
Iglesias is not in the lineup against the Twins on Thursday. Iglesias will retreat to the bench for the first time since the All-Star break as Ronny Rodriguez draws a start at shortstop. Though Iglesias was able to play Wednesday, he suffered a right thumb bruise during Tuesday's game, which likely prompted manager Ron Gardenhire to give him the day off for Thursday's series opener. Look for him to rejoin the starting lineup Friday.
Iglesias (thumb) will bat second and start at shortstop against the White Sox on Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Iglesias will not miss any additional time after leaving Tuesday's contest with a right thumb bruise prior to the top of the ninth inning. It appears as though his exit was precautionary on the part of manager Ron Gardenhire, so look for Iglesias to remain a fixture in the lineup moving forward.
Iglesias exited Tuesday's game against the White Sox with a right thumb bruise, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. Iglesias went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two strikeouts prior to being replaced at shortstop by Ronny Rodriguez for the top of the ninth inning. The severity of the injury is currently unknown.
Iglesias went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Reds. After hitting .243 in July, Iglesias got August started off on the right foot. For the season, the 28-year-old shortstop is batting .268 with a .701 OPS and 44 RBI. While he doesn't contribute much in the power department, Iglesias has been a steady hitter this year, and he's chipped in 13 steals as well, which has given him a decent amount of fantasy value.
