In the ALDS, Iglesias went 1 for 12 against the Oakland Athletics, then went 5 for 14 (.357) in the ALCS against his former team.
In 109 games, he hit .303/.349/.386 and was chosen to the Topps All-Star Rookie Team after the season. With 11 times hit by a pitch in 2013, he ranked fourth in the AL behind Shane Victorino, Daniel Nava, and Josh Willingham.
When the Tigers allowed Peralta to leave as a free agent after the season, Iglesias received yet another vote of confidence, solidifying his status as the team’s starting shortstop in 2014.
In spring training, he was hampered by shin soreness and began the season on the disabled list; the issue was subsequently related to stress fractures in both legs.
He was forced to miss the entire season due to his injuries, which was a significant loss for him and his squad.
In spring training of 2015, he was back on the field, but on March 8th, he had another setback when a ball bounced off his right shin while fielding grounders in a pre-game drill, and he had to be helped off the field.
Thankfully, the x-rays came out negative. He was able to take over as the Tigers’ starting shortstop on opening day, going 2 for 4 against the Minnesota Twins on April 6th, then following that up with a 4-for-4 performance two games later, providing the Tigers with the type of production that they had sorely lacked in his absence the previous year.
