Video: Jose Iglesias made a ridiculous play last night

17 Comments

The Tigers missed Jose Iglesias last year. If you doubt that for a second, watch this nasty play he made last night and ask yourself how many steak dinners Tiger pitchers are gonna buy him this year.

The thing about it is the mustard he got on that throw. Bend over and run in the opposite direction like that and try to throw anything across your body. Does it even go five feet? And even if it does, do you get a fast runner like Brett Gardner like Iglesias did here?

Mercy.

Yankees halt Giancarlo Stanton’s rehab due to calf tightness

There was some thought that Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton would soon be activated from the injured list. Stanton has been out since the beginning of April due to biceps and shoulder injuries. It will be a little while longer.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that Stanton’s rehab has been halted due to tightness in his left calf. Stanton was scratched from Tuesday’s rehab game with High-A Tampa due to tightness around his left calf and knee, so this news didn’t pop up out of nowhere.

Stanton recorded a pair of singles and seven walks in 15 trips to the plate in the only three games he played this season, all against the Orioles. Durability has always been a concern for the 29-year-old, but he managed to play in 159 games for the Marlins in 2017 and 158 for the Yankees last year. He’s in the fifth year of a 13-year, $325 million contract originally signed with the Marlins.
