Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Friday that he's be "shocked" if Jose Iglesias (finger) plays again this season.
Iglesias suffered a non-displaced fracture in his right middle finger when he was hit by a pitch while attempting a bunt on September 3. He could take batting practice in the next couple of days, but the calendar is obviously working against him. Assuming Iglesias is done, he'll finish with a .300/.347/.370 batting line over 120 games. He made his first All-Star team this summer. Sep 25 - 8:35 PM

Upon further examination, Jose Iglesias was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his finger.

The defensive wizard will miss at least the next two weeks, and could be sidelined for the remainder of the season. He is enjoying a nice season offensively as well, slashing .300/.347/.370 with a pair of homers and 23 RBI.

Jose Iglesias will undergo more tests after his ailing right middle finger swelled up on him overnight.

Iglesias was diagnosed with just a bruise on Thursday, but his finger feels worse a day later and that's obviously not a good sign. The Tigers should have more on the shortstop's status at some point over the weekend.
Sep 4 - 4:19 PM

Jose Iglesias is considered day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game with a right middle finger contusion.

Considering how much pain Iglesias appeared to be in after getting drilled with a pitch while trying to bunt, he's lucky to have avoided a fracture. He should rejoin the Tigers lineup in a day or two.
Sep 3 - 10:31 PM

Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the Royals after he was hit by a pitch on his right hand while attempting to bunt.

The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it appeared as though Iglesias was in quite a bit of pain. He'll presumably head for X-rays and the Tigers should have an update on his status shortly. If he's forced to miss any time, Andrew Romine would be the biggest beneficiary.
Sep 3 - 9:48 PM

Jose Iglesias is out of the Tigers' lineup on Monday.

Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and bat eighth in the Tigers' series opener at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park. It's just a day of rest for Iglesias.

Jose Iglesias went 0-for-4 against the Rangers on Thursday.

Iglesias's fantasy value got a little boost during his time as a No. 2 hitter, but with Miguel Cabrera back, he's hitting low in the order again now, limiting his chances to score runs. He really hasn't offered anything except a surprisingly strong average all season long. Factoring in defense and the nice OBP, he has a case as the AL's best shortstop this year. However, with just 2 homers, 21 RBI and 39 runs scored in 379 at-bats, he's hardly been a fantasy star.
Aug 20 - 10:20 PM

Jose Iglesias (illness) went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored on Wednesday.

Iglesias was scratched from the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday because of a mild illness -- probably just a cold. He's batting .324/.372/.404 in 82 games this season while playing stellar defense at shortstop. It's been a great comeback year for the 25-year-old.

Jul 17 - 10:17 PM

Jose Iglesias is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for the slick-fielding shortstop. Josh Wilson will draw a rare start in his place and bat eighth against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.
