Will We See Jose Iglesias? Today?
Injuries do happen in the major leagues, and we currently have Marco Scutaro heading down to the DL. Scutaro hurt his left side, and is going to be examined today, he is probable for the DL. The most likely replacement under normal circumstances for the call up would be Yamaico Navarro, but yesterday he left a game in Pawtcuket after hurting his back. In AAA Pawtucket this year, Navarro is batting .329/4/12 in 23 games. Iglesias, meanwhile, is hitting .253/0/4 in 24 games with Pawtucket. Last season, in 57 games with AA Portland, Iglesias hit .285/0/13. However, his main claim to fame is his defense, as he is a spectacular defender and always has been. Most Red Sox fans got to see Iglesias this spring, but I, living in Virginia, did not, as I don't have NESN. I would be very happy to see Iglesias, but I am not glad that Scutaro got injured.
