Abraham: Iggy pop? Iglesias shows some power

Taw Power!

yc

Jose Iglesias was 2 for 4 with a triple in today’s game against the Rays. It was his sixth extra-base hit of the spring in 38 at-bats.

The shortstop had three extra-base hits in 68 major-league at-bats last season and 11 in 353 at-bats fort Triple A Pawtucket.

Iglesias spent much of the winter improving his upper-body strength. He also has worked on driving the ball with more authority.

“The aggressiveness in the swing and the hard contact has shown up here the times he’s been on the field, it’s been very encouraging,” Farrell said.

Jon Heyman also tweeted…“folks all love jose iglesias’ defense. there’s split on if he’ll ever hit. says 1 scout, “i’m in the “not hopeless’ camp’‘

But is he a street-walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm?
