Jose Iglesias' crazy play for Detroit

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Old friend Jose Iglesias made one of the best plays of the year for his new team.

Jose Iglesias may be gone from Boston, but he's certainly not forgotten*. So when he goes and does something really, truly crazy for the Tigers, it seems worth mentioning.

The situation: the Tigers trail the White Sox 4-2 in the bottom of the sixth. Doug Fister just allowed a one out single, bringing Josh Phegley to the plate. Phegley swings on an 0-2 pitch, resulting in a looping flare just past Fister on the mound. Iglesias charges and, well, let's go to the tape:

Woah...

The Red Sox knew what they were giving up when they sent Iglesias to Detroit. It wasn't a .300 hitting shortstop. It was that. A glove--or in this case a bare hand--that's going to dominate highlight reels for as long as he's hitting enough to see the field. And, obviously given what happened in that video, enough doesn't have to be much.
