> Three more hits on Sunday boosted Iglesias’ August batting average to .348 with a .423 on-base percentage. He’s doubled five times and drawn nine walks. It’s even better than the May he put together in which he hit .341 with a .364 on-base percentage with two doubles, a triple and a home run, a hot run interrupted by a back injury that sidelined him for a month.
Unfortunately, he suffered an ankle injury toward the end of the game. Assuming he’s healthy in another week, call him up to the Sox. There really is no reason not to let him get some time against major league pitching while the Sox play out this season. Though this season is over as far as the Sox playoff chances, they should use this time wisely to find out what they really have in some of these prospects.
