The Red Sox have signed former shortstop José Iglesias. The move comes on the heels of the Angels releasing the 31-year-old infielder. Iglesias was the Halo’s shortstop for the majority of the season.
This season, Iglesias was batting .259 with eight home runs, 41 RBIs and was slashing .295/.375/.670. The former Sox shortstop was acquired by the Angels in a trade from the Orioles during the offseason.
Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe tweeted that Iglesias was at Fenway Park today. He added that Manager Alex Cora stated there were a lot of moving parts for the Red Sox coming.
