In response to dgalehouse's comment:
Iglesias is still very young. Not defending a bad attitude by any player , but it is at least understandable due to his youth and disappointment at being sent down when he was playing so well. He did not have a reputation as a problem guy. Not time to give up on him.
He had no business getting mad when he already knew the job was Drews. I understand being overall frustrated, but the kid cant hit. a .220BA with a sub 300 OBP with minimal power in AAA is going to be worse in MLB.
Theyre playing him at 3b and 2b now and I imagine that will at least land him a spot as a UI this year for either a trade or to at least prove he can hit MLB pitching. Ciriaco needs to go.
1) The SS position should not be primarily about hitting.
2) He has a .245 AAA BA in over 900 PAs not .220.
3) While it is not common for players to do better in MLB than the minors, we don't have to look any further than Ciriaco:
AAA .265/.281 (1080 PAs)
minors .272/.299 (3502 PAs)
MLB .286/.315 (459 PAs)
I guess he has the rest of the year to prove guys like me wrong. I hope he does.
Plus I was talking about his stats this year, which last time I looked a couple days ago were at .205/.262/.330 in 31 games for Pawtucket.
