News and Notes

Since taking over in Detroit following Jhonny Peralta's suspension, ex-Red Sox phenom Jose Iglesias has stroked a 302/.343/.365 line. After a few years of fits, starts, hype and deflation in Boston, he may finally have found his long-term home.

Jose Iglesias has been traded to the Tigers as part of the three-team swap that moved Jake Peavy to Boston.

With Stephen Drew stepping in for 2013 and the hard-hitting Xander Bogaerts on a rapid rise, the window of opportunity for Boston shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias seems to be closing. While a trade remains possible, it's just as likely the Sox will let the all-glove Iglesias continue to work on his bat in the minors while providing injury insurance for the ballclub.

As careful Scouting Book readers knew to expect, utility star Mike Aviles has been awarded the starting shortstop job in Boston for now, with Jose Iglesias sent down to polish himself up. Iglesias is very close, and a strong start to his Minor League season will cement our expectations: Jose will see MLB action later this season: soon if Aviles stumbles, late if he doesn't.

Requiring the usual careful parsing, Red Sox coach Bobby Valentine today explained that he things Jose Iglesias has MLB-ready talent in the field and at the plate, but it might not be 'his time' in the context of the existing Red Sox roster makeup. Our take: Net positive. Mike Aviles could open as Boston's SS, but he won't end 2012 there.

Boston's trade of starting shortstop Marco Scutaro today presumably frees up payroll for the Red Sox to pursue pitching help, but also clears the way for Jose Iglesias to make an earlier leap to the majors than expected.
