Jose Iglesias Scouting Report (2012 & Beyond)

Jose Iglesias Recent Updates

March 27th 2012

Jose Iglesias has been optioned to AAA-Pawtucket by the Red Sox. Iglesias and veteran infielder Mike Aviles has been battling for the shortstop spot during Spring Training.

It has been mentioned that management wanted to have Aviles play over Iglesias, but that Bobby Valentine wanted to sacrifice the bat and have great defense with Iglesias starting instead. Management won out, possibly because the need to get at-bats for the 22-year old phenom so his bat can be better for 2013. Remember, he has had only 1 homerun in his 3-year minor league career.
