Iglesias is not in the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias was listed on the Tigers' initial lineup, but the team issued a second lineup shortly after that does not include the young shortstop. It's unclear at this point if his absence is related to the hand injury that forced him out of Friday's game, though it's worth noting that Iglesias started and played in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Royals. Andrew Romine will get the starting nod at shortstop in Iglesias' place Sunday.

Iglesias (hand) is in the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias took a throw off of his right hand Friday afternoon, forcing him to depart the game early and undergo X-rays. With the results returning negative, Iglesias has been cleared to return to action, and he'll start at his usual shortstop spot Saturday looking to extend his five-game hitting streak.

Iglesias left Friday's game with a right hand contusion.

EDGE Analysis

He took a throw off his hand at some point but it sounds like Iglesias avoided any kind of serious injury, as X-rays were negative. The Tigers are listing Iglesias as merely day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matchup against Daniel Norris and the Tigers.

Iglesias is not in the lineup Friday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias hasn't had a day off since August 29, so he'll take a seat for Friday's bout. Erick Aybar will take over at shortstop in his stead.

Iglesias has struggled at the plate this season with a .244 average in 409 at-bats.

EDGE Analysis

His slash line of .244/.296/.323 is far below his all-star season of 2015 (.300/.347/.370 in 416 at-bats). But it's important to note that Iglesias has cut his number of errors in half to five (from 11) and his fielding percentage (.990) is well above the league average of .976. Leave him between the chalk lines and out of your lineup unless your format weights defensive contributions.

Iglesias is not in the lineup Monday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias started his first two games back after being activated off the DL, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout and a walk over the weekend. The day off Monday is likely part of an effort to give his hamstring a bit of a rest after he missed just over two weeks with a hamstring strain. Erick Aybar will draw the start at shortstop in his absence and bat ninth.

Iglesias, who went 0-for-2 with a walk in his return Saturday, will be back in the lineup Sunday and bat ninth.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias is working to get back in the groove after sitting for two weeks with a hamstring injury. He's better against lefties, so it's a decent matchup against the Halos' Tyler Skaggs. Iglesias is .245/.303/.400 against lefties.

Iglesias is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias immediately rejoins the Tigers' lineup after being activated off the DL earlier Saturday. He'll bat ninth against Brett Oberholtzer. During his rehab assignment, Iglesias hit .375 with a double and a home run over four games.

Iglesias (hamstring) was activated off the 15-day disabled list Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Tigers designated Alex Presley for assignment Saturday in order to clear a spot for Iglesias on the active roster. Iglesias' return may not tip the scales much for the Tigers offensively, but having his glove back at shortstop will be a huge boon to their infield defense. Andrew Romine and Erick Aybar stand to see a severe reduction in playing time with Iglesias back in the fold.

Iglesias (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Iglesias completed his rehab assignment and is with the team in Detroit. He played very well over four games at Triple-A Toledo, going 6-for-16 with a home run. Although Iglesias will be activated from the DL on Saturday, the club says that Erick Aybar will likely continue seeing occasional time at shortstop moving forward.
