Jose Iglesias traded to Angels

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Angels have traded for SS Jose Iglesias from the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

It's still unclear what Baltimore is receiving in return. Iglesias had his $3.5 million option picked up by the Orioles earlier this offseason, and he'll slide into Los Angeles as their Andrelton Simmons replacement. Iglesias hit a superb .373 to go along with a .956 OPS in 2020.

Jose Iglesias has option picked up

Jose Iglesias had his $3.5 million option picked up by the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias had a banner year in 2020, slashing .373/.400/.556 in 150 plate appearances. He battled several minor injuries, but that didn't stop him from posting a career-best wRC+, albeit in limited at-bats. Look for him to be the starting shortstop and at least start 2021 near the top of the order.

Jose Iglesias wraps two doubles Saturday

Jose Iglesias went 2-for-4 on Saturday against the Blue Jays with two doubles. He scored a run and drove one in himself in the 5-2 defeat.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias has been a solid piece of the otherwise decidedly average Orioles' lineup this year. After hitting .373 with a .956 OPS in 142 at-bats this year, he will be an interesting late-round depth piece in deeper leagues next year.

Jose Iglesias hits another homer Friday

Jose Iglesias went 1-for-4 with a solo homer on Friday. The Orioles lost, 10-5.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias had been a source of empty batting average until hitting homers in back-to-back games. For the season, he is hitting .370 with a .941 OPS. He could be a good boost this weekend for average, runs, and RBI.

Jose Iglesias hits solo homer

Jose Iglesias was the DH and hit second in Thursday's game against the Red Sox, going 1-for-4 with a solo homer. The Orioles won, 13-1.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias has been very banged up this year, but has slashed .373/.401/.530 in 134 at-bats. He will be an option as a reserve in deeper leagues next year.
