RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After being acquired in a 2013 midseason deal with the Red Sox, Iglesias was expected to take over as the Tigers' full-time shortstop of the present and future in 2014. Instead, Iglesias was forced to sit out all of last season after he was diagnosed with stress fractures in both legs Ė injuries that were originally thought to be shin splints. During a healthy campaign in 2013, Iglesias started to show signs that he belonged as an everyday major leaguer. In 109 appearances split between the Red Sox and Tigers, he hit .303/.349/.386 with 21 extra-base hits and five steals. While the productivity at the plate in 2013 was a pleasant surprise, Iglesias' primary value still rested in his glove, as he offers premium defense at the shortstop position. Iglesias was given clearance to ramp up baseball activities in mid-October, and heís expected to be ready to participate when spring training opens. Detroit hasnít anointed Iglesias the everyday starting shortstop, but he is considered the favorite for the gig over Eugenio Suarez and Andrew Romine.

2014

With Jhonny Peraltaís 50-game suspension looming, Iglesias was acquired by the Tigers in a deadline deal that included Jake Peavy and Avisail Garcia. Iglesias was immediately plugged in as the Tigersí primary shortstop, hitting .259/.306/.348 in 135 at-bats for his new squad. While he flashed some offense (.330/.376/.409) with the Red Sox prior to the midseason move to Detroit, Iglesias has always been considered a light-hitting prospect who offers premium defense at the shortstop position. Last seasonís final batting average of .303 was largely inflated by a .359 BABIP. And, of course, Iglesias offers very little in the power department, connecting on just six home runs over 1,098 career at-bats in the minors. Still, Iglesias does have good speed, which could help him sustain a high BABIP and provide decent stolen-base totals as he develops his baserunning skills. Peralta signed with the Cardinals as a free agent in November, making way for Iglesias to be the Tigers' everyday shortstop of the present and future. His primary value will always come on the defensive side of the ball, but if Iglesias can improve at the dish and start to steal bases at a decent clip, heíll provide surprising value in deeper formats.

2013

One month does not make a hitter. So when examining Iglesias' September line (.118/.200/.191), don't label him as an "all glove, no bat" shortstop just yet. The Red Sox did not give up on Dustin Pedroia when he started his big-league career slowly, so they are not pulling the plug on Iglesias yet. The organization is confident he will become a better hitter, but it would like to see Iglesias put together a stretch of quality at-bats before considering him for the everyday shortstop. Unfortunately, that chance may not come early in 2013 with Boston signing Stephen Drew. But given Drew's injury history, Iglesias could still take over the job. However, his bat will need to make a significant improvement to have much of an impact for fantasy purposes.

2012

Iglesias made his major league debut in 2011 with a brief stint in May when Marco Scutaro was injured and then returned in September. The consensus is that he's Boston's shortstop of the future due to his glove, but the Red Sox would like to see more good at-bats from him in Triple-A. He showed better-than-expected offense in 2010 at the Double-A level, but it didn't sustain in his first full year at the most-advanced minor league level. A full season at Pawtucket is expected.

2011

Iglesias is seen as the Red Sox's shortstop of the future with a major league ready glove. The question remains as to how good his bat will get, but he started the season well before a knuckle injury wiped out June, July and half of August. That's two-and-a-half months of development lost. He's not very selective, does not handle pitches on the outside third of the plate well and is getting used to advanced pitching at the professional level. Developing a better approach at the plate and making up for those lost at-bats in 2010 are seen as his primary goals for 2011. Look for him to start the season at Double-A Portland and don't read too much into it if he stays there the whole season.

2010

Iglesias, 19, is being touted as Boston's shortstop of the future, but the Cuban defector has yet to play an inning at the minor league level. He brings a major league ready glove with a plus arm and range. Like a lot of young shortstops, Iglesias needs some work at the plate -- in particular his strike-zone management and patience.
