Iglesias went 2-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored and a home run on Monday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias has now hit safely in five straight games, raising his average to .258. The shortstop isn't likely to match his .300 average from a season ago, but his four home runs mark a season high, and he is on pace to set new career-highs in both RBI and runs scored as well.

Iglesias went 2-for-3 with one run scored in Friday's 4-2 win over Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias just hasn't been able to replicate his outstanding 2015 and he's now scuffling along with a .254/.308/.336 slash line. However, it should be noted that he has 20 RBI and 38 runs in 283 at-bats after driving in 23 and scoring 44 in 416 last season. His numbers haven't been great, but Iglesias is certainly cashing in on the opportunities he's been given.

Iglesias is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Andrew Romine will get the start at shortstop Friday as Iglesias gets his first day off since June 12. Iglesias has had a strong month of June altogether as he's slashed .351/.425/.468 while also providing top-notch defense from the shortstop position. He figures to rejoin the lineup Saturday following his rest day.

Iglesias will bat second in the order Thursday against the Mariners, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias typically bats out of the nine-spot, but he'll move up in the order Thursday due to Cameron Maybin, the typical two-hitter, getting the day off. The 26-year-old shortstop owns a .427 on-base percentage in the month of June, making him a strong candidate for the short-term role.

Iglesias extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a pair of singles in Thursday's win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

He went 2-for-4 with a run scored; he also reached on a fielder's choice. Iglesias has put a horrible May behind him (.160 in 25 games) and is now turning in a performance that hints that his outstanding 2015 wasn't a fluke.

Iglesias is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

It looks as though Iglesias will have to wait a bit to try and extend his hitting streak to 11 games, as manager Brad Ausmus will give him the afternoon off Sunday. Mike Aviles will replace Iglesias at shortstop and bat ninth in the order.

Iglesias went 1-for-4 in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Yankees, extending his hitting streak to a season-high nine games.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old got the season off to a terrific start, hitting .421 after his first five games. However, Iglesias had largely struggled since that point, with his average hitting a low of .211 on May 31. The Tigers shortstop started his current hitting streak the very next day, and has now slashed .385/.467/.500 over 26 June at-bats. He's still not contributing in the power department (one homer on the season), but if he can keep his on-base levels much closer to his current figure, it would certainly help make up for his month-plus of poor production.
