The Detroit Tigers knew they were acquiring a special defensive player when they traded for Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox right before the trade deadline. On Monday night during the team’s 6-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox, Iglesias made one of those plays that will make you say “OH. MY. GOSH,” after diving to make the play at first.
Iglesias is definitely a step up defensively from Jhonny Peralta, who was suspended 50-games because of PEDs.
