Jose Iglesias SS/3B DET 2 Months

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski on Wednesday officially ruled out Jose Iglesias (shins) for the 2014 season.

The Tigers will receive the latest medical report on Iglesias on Wednesday, but Dombrowski conceded that the shortstop won't be an option this season regardless of the findings. "We do not plan on having Iglesias back with us this year," the GM said. Dombrowski did add that Iglesias "is progressing as projected, but we do not think he will be ready at any point this season to play." Andrew Romine and Danny Worth will continue manning short for now, but Eugenio Suarez and/or Hernan Perez could get a look eventually.

Jose Iglesias (shins) will be re-evaluated in the coming days to determine whether there's a chance he could possibly return this season.

The expectation is that the stress fractures Iglesias has in both shins will keep him out until 2015, but the Tigers won't officially rule him out until this week's exam. "We should get an update on him here in the next 24 hours," manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that Jose Iglesias (shins) will miss at least four months, and perhaps the entirety of the 2014 season.

It's a very tough break for the Tigers, as the defensive wizard adds considerable value to the team's pitching staff. The Tigers are now reportedly interested in signing free agent Stephen Drew to fill the void, but they could also talk to the Mariners about Nick Franklin, or let in-house option Hernan Perez get a crack at regular playing time.

Peter Gammons reported earlier in the day that there may be truth to the rumor that the Tigers were in on Stephen Drew, and if the reports on Iglesias are true, it almost seems like a must now. It's all speculation at this point, but where there's smoke there's usually fire.

After visiting with a chiropractor Friday, Jose Iglesias (shins) was given a micro feedback machine with biofeedback, which he will wear for 24 hours.

Iglesias is able to hit and field with no issues, but his shins are still painful when he runs. Tigers trainer Kevin Rand said the shortstop is dealing with a "tibial stress reaction," which is essentially severe shin splints. At this point, a trip to the disabled list is looking likely, but the Tigers hope to know more after the micro feedback machine results come back. Hernan Perez will be the club's Opening Day shortstop if Iglesias isn't ready.
