Walk-off loss couldn’t have been more painful for Tigers SS Jose Iglesias

It’s tough to imagine how Wednesday’s 8-7 loss in Tampa Bay could have ended any more regrettably for Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias.

A potential game-ending double-play turned into a walk-off error — and a TKO — for Iglesias after he stumbled on the second-base bag and threw wildly to first. Iglesias got a knee to the head as Brad Miller slid to try to break up the play in the process:

Down went Iglesias, and down he stayed. Ouch.

“It looks like the knee hit him in the jaw. He kind of hit the base and tripped on the throw and he and the runner kind of collided,” manager Brad Ausmus told the Detroit Free Press. “He’s been in better shape, let’s put it that way.”

As a result, Iglesias is a candidate for the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Be careful out there.
