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.
