Jose Iglesias Named FN's June Player O' Month

He's been asked to play out of position. He's been thrown into the middle of a pennant race. And, he's performed. Jose Iglesias—who we were told was offensively challenged—hit .395 in 25 June games  and has been named FenwayNation's Player Of The Month. Of course, Iglesias still delivered his signature defense during June—making spectacular plays at both short and third while leading the team in hitting. His .453 on-base percentage, .523 slugging percentage and .976 OPS were also among the team leaders. He has forced manager John Farrell's hand—he has to be in this team's line-up somewhere everyday. Congratulations, Jose!
