Watch Jose Iglesias’ diving backhanded catch

Iglesias is having a breakout game against the Rays on Monday evening.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were dealt some awful news on Monday. All-Star shortstop Corey Seager will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the season, leaving a huge hole in their infield.

This news probably isn’t factoring into Jose Iglesias’ play in Detroit tonight, but either way, Iglesias has been having a whale of a game so far. He lined a double down into the right field corner that might have been a triple were it not for fan interference. He made a nice leaping catch on a soft liner from Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jesus Sucre.

And he made this ridiculous diving catch to rob C.J. Cron of a sure hit.

Whether Iglesias becomes trade fodder or not, here’s hoping he continues to make highlight reel plays like this in his final season in a Tigers uniform.
