Jose Iglesias: Opts out again
Iglesias opted out of his minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
This marks the third minor-league contract Iglesias has opted out of this season -- once with the Marlins and now twice with the Padres. The 33-year-old shortstop holds a nice .314/.354/.542 slash line through 130 plate appearances in Triple-A. He will presumably now search for an organization that can offer a more direct path to the majors.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jose Iglesias: Re-signs on MiLB deal
San Diego re-signed Iglesias on Tuesday to a minor-league contract.
Iglesias went 3-for-5 with two doubles in his return to the Triple-A El Paso lineup. The infielder triggered an out clause in his minor-league pact with the Padres on Friday, but after testing the waters he's back with the San Diego organization for the foreseeable future. Iglesias will have to be added to the 40-man roster if the Padres decide he's worthy of a call-up to the 26-man active group.... See More ... See Less
Jose Iglesias: Opts out of Padres deal
Iglesias opted out of his minor-league contract with the Padres on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Iglesias latched on with the Padres after opting out of his minor-league pact with the Marlins in late April and now it appears he's on the move again. The 33-year-old shortstop has batted .276/.330/.414 with one home run across 21 games at the Triple-A level this season. It's not clear whether Iglesias might have a major-league contract in the works somewhere or if he's just decided a promotion to San Diego isn't happening.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jose Iglesias: Gets MiLB deal with Friars
Iglesias signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
After opting out of his minor-league deal with Miami on Thursday, Iglesias now joins the Padres as an organizational depth piece. The 33-year-old shortstop had a solid season in the majors last year (.292 AVG, .708 OPS), but as long as Xander Bogaerts is in San Diego, it's unlikely that Iglesias gets many reps with the big-league squad....

Jose Iglesias: Opts out of deal
Iglesias opted out of his minor-league contract with the Marlins on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
After failing to make the Marlins' major-league roster out of spring training, or get added to the 26-man roster when Joey Wendle (ribs) landed on the IL, Iglesias took the hint that he wasn't really in Miami's plans and is now free to sign with any team he chooses. The 33-year-old shortstop slashed .292/.328/.380 over 467 plate appearances last season with the Rockies, so there should be a handful of teams interested in bringing him on -- likely as a bench piece....

Marlins' Jose Iglesias: Won't be on Opening Day roster
Marlins general manager Kim Ng said Sunday that Iglesias won't make the Opening Day roster but will stay in the organization, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The Marlins signed Iglesias earlier this month on a minor-league deal and afforded him the opportunity to compete for a reserve role with the big club, but another veteran non-roster invitee in Yuli Gurriel appears set to beat him out for the bench gig. Iglesias received only 13 plate appearances over five Grapefruit League games, hitting just .167. Iglesias will presumably head to Triple-A Jacksonville rather than immediately opting out of his minor-league deal to pursue opportunities elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Iglesias: On roster bubble
Iglesias is not considered a lock to make the Marlins' Opening Day roster, Barry Jackson and Craig Mish of the Miami Herald report.
It sounds like there will be just one roster spot for either Iglesias or Yuli Gurriel, both of whom are in camp as non-roster invitees. Which way the team might be leaning out of the two isn't clear. Iglesias, 33, is 2-for-11 in four games so far during Grapefruit League play and "hasn't looked great this spring," per Jackson and Mish.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Iglesias: Joins Marlins
Iglesias signed a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training with the Marlins on Thursday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Iglesias spent the 2022 season with Colorado and managed a solid .292/.328/.380 line across 467 appearances. He won't have the benefit of Coors Field as his home park with Miami, though he should have a legitimate chance to make the Opening Day roster as insurance at shortstop behind Joey Wendle....

Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Returns from IL
Iglesias (thumb) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting at shortstop and batting second Wednesday against the Giants, Sonja Chen of MLB.com reports.
The 32-year-old has been sidelined over three weeks by the thumb injury but will rejoin the Rockies for the final week of the season. Prospect Ezequiel Tovar has taken over the starting role at shortstop, but Iglesias should still find regular playing time down the stretch in the middle infield and at designated hitter, especially with Charlie Blackmon (knee) now done for the year....

Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Getting closer to return
Iglesias (thumb) is feeling better and getting closer to making a return, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Manager Bud Black still has yet to announce a timetable for Iglesias, but the news of progress is still good for a Rockies team that has been plagued with injuries to its best players late in the season. Alan Trejo continues to mash in his absence, slashing .308/.372/.538 with seven RBI since arriving to Colorado earlier this month.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Iglesias: No timetable to return
Iglesias (thumb) remains without a timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, MLB.com reports.
Iglesias is first eligible to return from the IL on Thursday, and the swelling on his thumb continues to reduce. However, he's still doing work in the training room, so he seems unlikely to return after a minimum-length stint on the shelf. Alan Trejo has taken over as the primary shortstop in Iglesias' absence and has gone 8-for-25 with two homers, five RBI and four runs scored across eight games since being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque....

Iglesias was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuedsay retroactive to Sept. 5 with a right hand contusion.

Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Getting MRI on hand
Rockies manager Bud Black said prior to Monday's game against the Brewers that Iglesias will require an MRI for his sore left hand, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Iglesias doesn't look like he'll be available for the series opener after he exited the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds with the hand injury. Alan Trejo will pick up the start at shortstop Monday, though he could face competition for reps at the position from Garrett Hampson if Iglesias' hand injury is serious enough to force a trip to the 10-day injured list....

Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Remains out Monday
Iglesias (hand) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.
Iglesias will sit for the second game in a row after he exited the front end of Sunday's doubleheader in Cincinnati when he hurt his hand on a swing. The 32-year-old is considered day-to-day while he manages the sore hand, but the Rockies don't yet believe that he'll require a stint on the injured list. Alan Trejo will spell Iglesias at shortstop Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Sits for second game Sunday
Iglesias (hand) is out of the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Reds.
As expected, Iglesias will head to the bench for Game 2 after he exited in the fourth inning of the Rockies' 8-4 win in Game 1 due to a hand injury. Alan Trejo, who came off the bench to replace Iglesias in Game 1, draws the start at shortstop for the final game of the day.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Iglesias: Hurts hand Sunday
Iglesias was removed in the fourth inning of the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Reds due to an apparent hand injury, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout prior to departing the contest.
Saunders notes that Iglesias appeared to suffer the injury on a swing during his second and final plate appearance of the afternoon. The Rockies have yet to provide an update on Iglesias' condition since his departure, but he'll most likely be out of the lineup for the second game of the twin bill. Alan Trejo replaced Iglesias at shortstop in Game 1.... See More ... See Less
