Fantasy Football 2014:

Tigers SS Iglesias likely to miss 2014 season

The SportsXchange

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is likely to miss the entire 2014 season with stress fractures in both legs, general manager Dave Dombrowski confirmed Thursday.

There is a small chance Iglesias will be able to play late in the season. Iglesias is expected to be ready to go in 2015.

Dombrowksi said Iglesias will be limited to "non-weight bearing conditioning" exercises for four to six months. He will be re-evaluated after four months.

Iglesias, 24, has battled shin splints for most of his career. Iglesias, acquired by Detroit from the Boston Red Sox in a three-team trade in July, is regarded as one of baseball's top defensive shortstops. He hit .303 in 350 at-bats last year.
