  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Racks up four hits

    Iglesias went 4-for-4 with two runs scored during Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Rockies.

    Iglesias reached safely in all five of his plate appearances and tied a career high with four hits. The veteran second baseman has been integral to the Mets' turnaround, slashing .380/.417/.582 with three home runs, 14 runs, 16 RBI and an 8.3 percent K rate since joining the Mets' 26-man roster May 31.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: First career two-homer game

    Iglesias went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Friday's 7-6 win over the Rockies.

    The veteran infielder took Tanner Gordon deep in the second inning before turning around a Peter Lambert fastball in the fifth, giving Iglesias his first career multi-homer performance in his 1,124th big-league game. Jeff McNeil has been bouncing between the keystone and a corner outfield spot with Starling Marte (knee) on the shelf, but McNeil would likely be losing playing time at second base even if the rest of the roster was healthy -- in 79 plate appearances since joining the Mets, Iglesias is slashing .347/.380/.560 with seven doubles, three home runs, 12 runs and 16 RBI.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Rejoining lineup Friday

    Iglesias (illness) is starting at second base and batting seventh Friday against the Rockies, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The veteran infielder sat out Thursday's contest due to an illness but is back in action for Friday's series opener versus Colorado. Iglesias has carried a hot bat of late and is hitting .286 with an .820 OPS in his past 10 games.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Feeling ill Thursday

    Iglesias is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals due to an illness, Steve Gelbs of SportsNet New York reports.

    Though he had been expected to start Thursday against southpaw MacKenzie Gore, the right-handed-hitting Iglesias apparently felt ill during Wednesday's 6-2 win and required an IV after cramping up following the game. Iglesias is apparently still feeling under the weather Thursday, so the Mets will let him rest in the series finale while Jeff McNeil steps in at second base.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Hitting bench Thursday

    Iglesias is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Though he'll hit the bench Thursday, Iglesias seems to have pushed his way into a near-everyday role in the New York infield. He had started in five of the previous six games, and he turned in another strong performance in Wednesday's 6-2 win, going 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs. Jeff McNeil will cover second base Thursday, but McNeil could end up seeing more time in the corner outfield if the Mets want to continue opening up regular playing time in the infield for Iglesias.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Collects three hits in victory

    Iglesias went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs and two RBI in Wednesday's 6-2 win against Washington.

    Iglesias had been running cold in July coming into Wednesday, batting .185 (5-for-27) over eight contests. However, he's continued to start on a consistent basis, as he's been in the lineup -- primarily at second base -- in five of the Mets' past six contests. That certainly paid off for the team Wednesday, as Iglesias collected three hits, including a tiebreaking two-run single in the sixth frame. The veteran infielder is batting a robust .338 on the campaign, albeit with just one homer and one steal over 27 games.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Getting fourth straight start

    Iglesias will start at second base and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Pirates, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The Mets will include Iglesias in the lineup for a fourth straight game and for the third time against a right-handed starting pitcher (Mitch Keller). Though the right-handed-hitting Iglesias initially looked set to serve as a short-side platoon mate at the keystone for Jeff McNeil, the Mets may be compelled to make regular room for both players in the lineup against right-handed pitching. McNeil will pick up a start in right field Monday and could end up seeing more frequent opportunities at that position so long as Starling Marte (knee) remains on the injured list. Since getting called up from Triple-A Syracuse on May 31, Iglesias has slashed .333/.373/.476 with one home run and one stolen base across 67 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Launches first homer

    Iglesias went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's extra-inning win over the Nationals.

    Getting the start at second base against southpaw MacKenzie Gore and batting eighth, Iglesias didn't make his mark until the 10th inning, when he drove the first pitch Jordan Weems threw over the center-field fence to wrap up a six-run frame for the Mets. While his first homer of the season came against a right-hander pitcher, Iglesias has thrived in his short-side platoon role, producing a 1.147 OPS in 29 plate appearances against lefties since joining New York's big-league roster.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Two doubles in three-hit effort

    Iglesias went 3-for-4 with two doubles, one RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 9-6 loss to the Astros.

    Iglesias has gone 7-for-17 over his last 10 contests, recording a plate appearance in just seven of those games. Over 43 plate appearances this year, he's batting .425 with seven RBI, six runs scored, one stolen base and four doubles, but the typically light-hitting infielder has yet to hit a home run. Iglesias' best path to playing time is at second base, where he's currently on the short side of a platoon with Jeff McNeil, who is hitting just .221 on the year and .211 in June.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Four hits, three RBI in win

    Iglesias went 4-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored in Friday's 11-1 win over the Cubs.

    Iglesias was active early, singling and scoring a run in the second inning, hitting an RBI single in the third and adding a two-run single in the fourth. He later added another base hit in the seventh. Iglesias has gone an impressive 14-for-32 with six RBI and five runs scored in his return to the majors while primarily starting at second base against left-handed pitchers.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Retreating to bench Wednesday

    Iglesias is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

    Iglesias had started at second base in five of the past six games while the Mets faced a lefty-heavy schedule, but he'll retreat to the bench Wednesday even though Miami is bringing southpaw Braxton Garrett to the hill. Jeff McNeil will get the nod at second base and remains the Mets' top option at the keystone, but Iglesias should continue to play ahead of McNeil against most lefties.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Three hits in Monday's win

    Iglesias went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in Monday's 8-7 win over the Nationals.

    Getting the start at second base and batting eighth with left-hander MacKenzie Gore on the mound for the Nats, Iglesias produced his first three-hit performance since August 2022 -- and that game was in Coors Field. The 34-year-old was added to the roster to provide infield depth, but he's begun his Mets tenure by going 5-for-11 with a stolen base. With Jeff McNeil stumbling to a career-worst .227/.296/.320 slash line and 103.9 mile-per-hour max exit velocity so far, the door could be open for Iglesias to see more playing time than expected at the keystone, and potentially even take over the starting job.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Added to roster

    The Mets selected Iglesias' contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The Mets have been playing without a true backup middle infielder of late, but that will change with Iglesias being added to the roster. The 34-year-old has slashed .273/.309/.442 with seven home runs this season at Syracuse.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: First MLB action since 2022

    Iglesias is batting eighth and playing second base Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    After spending the last year and change in the minor leagues, Iglesias got called up from Triple-A Syracuse and will give Jeff McNeil a breather Friday. Iglesias figures to operate as a reserve infielder with the Mets and is capable of playing second, shortstop and third base.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Unlikely to opt out

    Iglesias is expected to report to Triple-A Syracuse after he said Sunday that he doesn't plan to exercise the opt-out clause in his minor-league deal with the Mets, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    After being informed Saturday that he wouldn't be included on the Mets' Opening Day roster, Iglesias looked like a candidate to request a release that would allow him to sign elsewhere, but he'll instead stick around in the organization a little longer to begin the season. If a promotion to the majors isn't imminent in the first few weeks of the minor-league season, however, Iglesias could change his mind and pursue an opportunity elsewhere.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Won't make Opening Day roster

    Iglesias was informed Saturday that he won't be making the Mets' Opening Day roster, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Iglesias signed a minor-league contract with the Mets in December that included an invitation to spring training. He posted a respectable .294/.333/.471 batting line over 34 at-bats in Grapefruit League play, but the Mets didn't have room for him on the Opening Day roster as a backup infielder.

  • Mets' Jose Iglesias: Signs minors contract with Mets

    The Mets signed Iglesias to a minor-league contract Tuesday with an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Iglesias did not appear in a big-league game in 2023, though he posted an impressive .317/.356/.537 batting line across 135 plate appearances with the Triple-A affiliate of the Padres. He'll turn 34 years old next month but can offer organizational infield depth for New York in 2024.

  • Jose Iglesias: Opts out again

    Iglesias opted out of his minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    This marks the third minor-league contract Iglesias has opted out of this season -- once with the Marlins and now twice with the Padres. The 33-year-old shortstop holds a nice .314/.354/.542 slash line through 130 plate appearances in Triple-A. He will presumably now search for an organization that can offer a more direct path to the majors.

  • Padres' Jose Iglesias: Re-signs on MiLB deal

    San Diego re-signed Iglesias on Tuesday to a minor-league contract.

    Iglesias went 3-for-5 with two doubles in his return to the Triple-A El Paso lineup. The infielder triggered an out clause in his minor-league pact with the Padres on Friday, but after testing the waters he's back with the San Diego organization for the foreseeable future. Iglesias will have to be added to the 40-man roster if the Padres decide he's worthy of a call-up to the 26-man active group.
