With Aviles off to Toronto, the Red Sox will need a new shortstop. He believes rookie Jose Iglesias can handle the job.
“That kid is special. He does things in the field I’ve never seen anybody do and I know I can’t do,” Aviles said. “His hand-eye coordination in the field is amazing and it’s only a matter of time before that translates into hitting for him. It will happen.
“I like Jose a lot. I was planning to talk to him a lot in the winter and I still will. He can do the job and I hope they give him the chance. It’s fun to watch him play.” from Boston Globe atricle
High praise. Makes me feel even better about Iggy.
