Jose Iglesias will be out four to six months because of stress fractures in both legs. Detroit Tigers shortstop was examined by a specialist on Tuesday, and is scheduled to be reevaluated in four months. Iglesias will be relegated to non-weight bearing exercises and upper-body conditioning for four to six months. The smooth-fielding Iglesias hit .303 for Boston and Detroit last season. Detroit might sign free agent Stephen Drew to replace the 24-year-old Iglesias if the championship-contending franchise isn't comfortable starting someone such as Danny Worth at the important position.
