Iglesias coming on strong


By this point, Jose Iglesias has firmly established his reputation as being among the best fielders in the game at shortstop, but over the last month he has put together one of the best offensive streaks of his three-year career with the Red Sox.

He signed in September 2009 after defecting from Cuba, and it was clear even as a 19-year-old seeing his first action in the Arizona Fall League that year that his incredible defensive skills would carry him to the major leagues in some fashion. What has been less clear is exactly how well his bat would develop. The last month has provided some hope that he will reach his offensive potential and not be an all-glove, no-bat type player.
