Competitive Edge Analysis

Not only did he account for one of the two runs against Nats starter Max Scherzer, he also accounted for only one of Scherzer's 20 strikeouts. All in all, that has to make it a successful evening for the 26-year-old shortstop, who entered Wednesday's action with just two extra-base hits in 95 at-bats.

Iglesias went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old shortstop is off to an excellent start in 2016, with multi-hit games in three straight contests and a four-game hitting streak overall. Although he won't provide much in the way of homers and RBI, Iglesias is expected to serve as an effective table-setter that should have an abundance of run-scoring opportunities considering the caliber of hitters following him in the lineup.

Iglesias, who wasn't considered the best teammate despite an All-Star season in 2015, spent the offseason mulling his approach and he says he'll stop chasing personal stats this season and focus on a team-first attitude, reports MLive.com.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That's great for Iglesias and the Tigers, and not so great for fantasy owners. Iglesias hit .300, but was more concerned about his own stats than doing whatever it took for his team to win. It culminated in an August shoving match with catcher James McCann in the dugout. He promises to change: "A year is a long time to look at yourself in the mirror and say, 'I did this for myself, or I can do more for my team,' " Iglesias said. "At the end of the day, it's not about you. It's about winning." His value lies in his ability to deliver offense, so we're downgrading him a tick or two until we know more.
