2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
