Jose Iglesias (wrist) is still absent from Wednesday's lineup against the Red Sox.
Iglesias hasn't played since taking a pitch off his wrist on Saturday. X-rays were negative but the Orioles don't feel he's ready to play just yet. Iglesias is batting a fantastic .377 this year.
Jose Iglesias was hit by a pitch on his wrist in Saturday's game against the Rays, and had to exit the game. While his X-rays came back negative, he will be reevaluated Sunday. It is being considered a contusion at this point.
Iglesias has been banged up this season, getting two types of leg injuries and now this freak hit-by-pitch injury. Assuming that the wrist is going to be sore for a few days, you may want to drop him now since the Orioles are not in the playoff race.
Jose Iglesias (ankle) is in the Orioles' lineup for the first game of their doubleheader against the Rays on Thursday.
Iglesias left Wednesday's game after being hit by a pitch on the ankle. He seems to be okay moving forward, however. Iglesias is batting second and serving as the team's designated hitter.
Jose Iglesias (ankle) was hit by a pitch in the eighth inning and forced to leave the game. Rio Ruiz was called upon to pinch run for Iglesias. Iglesias' availability for Thursday's game against the Rays is up in the air. Look for the Orioles to update his status before the game.
Iglesias is slashing .381/.402/.516 in 127 at-bats for the Orioles this season. However, his .424 BABIP is .116 points higher than his career average .308 BABIP. He also is not hitting the ball particularly hard, his 85.3 MPH exit velocity is in the sixth percentile among all qualified batters. Iglesias is likely going to face some serious regression in batting average either this season or next. Fantasy owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can continue to play him while he is hot. He is not a recommended keeper in keeper leagues.
Jose Iglesias went 2-for-4 on Tuesday against the Braves, hitting a single and a double. The Orioles lost, 5-1.
Iglesias is rebounding from a poor week-long stretch, and is now hitting .374. He's a great pickup in 15-teamers for his three-category value, but he's not as valuable in shallower leagues.
