    Iggy back on the DL

    Iglesias has is now back on the DL, this time with a concussion.  I didn't see how it happened, so I welcome input on that.  Last year it was a wrist injury that derailed shortened Iggy's season, depending on the severity of the concussion, this has the potential to do the same.

    Let's hope that Navarro can show that he's capable of covering SS next year, at least in a backup role.  If Iggy misses significant time with his concussion, I can't see him being ready for 2012.

    Lowrie/Navarro for the start of 2012?

    Jose Iglesias, widely regarded as the Red Sox' shortstop of the future, suffered a concussion Sunday when he was beaned by Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Andrew Brackman and was placed on the International League's seven-day disabled list by the Pawtucket Red Sox.

    Iglesias lay on the ground for several minutes after being hit by the pitch, but was able to walk off the field under his own power. According to the Providence Journal, preliminary testing was encouraging.

    Iglesias spent two weeks with the Red Sox earlier this season when Marco Scutaro was injured. He is hitting .227 for the PawSox.

    He got hit with a pitch in the back of his head, right behind his ear. He went down immediately and didn't move for a while and then they flipped him over and he still didn't move for a bit. He finally got up with help and got off the field. You can read more about it here

    I saw a replay of his injury on NESN.  It definitely isn't good to see anyone get this type of injury.  I would imagine that he may be out longer than a week.

    This guy is so vastly overated its comical
    He is so bad with the bat its a joke .IMHO he needs at least 3 years at A ball to get a hang on how to hit a ball.
    Being ready for 2012 you mean what .

    Re: Iggy back on the DL

    Iglesias is young, not very big, and missed a considerable amount of AA time due to his hand injury last year. He's not hitting well, no, but I think he is no where near the top of his potential. He will never be a power hitter but he has been working with the hitting coah in Pawtucket to refine his swing and get a better read on the ball. Ready for 2012? Probably not, but it is way too early to count him out entirely.

    I agree not to count him out .But as was stated here before he ha s a real lot to learn about hitting .He may be ready in 3-4 years but probably not much before.If he can`t add some gap power he may not see the BIGS. A great glove but a . .230        .240 hitter will not be  a great fit with the sox.

    His hitting should come around to a serviceable level as he gets more experience reading the ball out of the pitchers hand and as he fills out a bit.  I'm not overly worried about his long term hitting ability, but for next year I was hoping he could at least carry a OBP of .320 while playing GG defense.  So long as he could keep turning over the lineup I would have been ok with it for now, with the opportunity to add doubles power later.

    This certainly should spice up the rivalry in a couple years though.  Players already indoctrinated into the rival coming up from the minors in Brackman (the pitch who hit Iggy) and Iggy.

    I just keep thinking back to Brian Robert's concussion and how much time he's missed this year.  As well as how much time Bay missed with a concussion.

    Re: Iggy back on the DL

    Brackman has got to be an intimidating pitcher to face, with the idea of maybe getting hit due to his lack of control. Did he get hit on the helmet? That would seem to be a big part of this. I wouldn't want to even think about getting hit in that area with no helmet protection. 

    If he was motionless for an extended period that would also seem to be a huge concern. Let's hope for the best but no way he is out just a week.

    So much for Kalish and Igglesias in the starting lineup next year.

    Considering all the injuries the big league club has faced the past couple of years the DL might be the best place for iglesias to be groomed for his big league career.

    Yeah, it got him in the helmet, right by the ear flap.  Roberts has been out since May 16th with a concussion and hasn't begun swinging a bat yet (he also had been placed on the 7 day DL).  Every concussion is different , but that certainly isn't encouraging.

    I don't see how he is ready next year anyway.  He has 4 extrabase hits in 229 at bats.  That is nowhere near MLB ready with the bat.  Even if he is the best fielder in the league if he is hitting 180 he isn't going to cut it.
