Let's discuss Iglesias.

He is the everyday 3B for the Sox now and has SS eligibility is some leagues. Batting 9th, but is hitting for average and scoring runs.

How good is he? How good of a keeper can he be for future years? I would love to hear some opinions.

With Bogaerts, Middlebrooks and Cecchini in the minors, I'd say his keeper value is fairly low. Even when he was considered a top prospect, it was still for his glove rather than his bat. I don't see this current pace keeping up. If you can get someone to buy in a keeper for his age I would sell.

Read this about Igesias on another site:

He has a BABIP in the .475 range after tonight. This is a guy who had a .622 OPS in over 1200 career PAs in the minors. To put that in perspective, his lifetime OPS in the minors is the same as Brendan Ryan's lifetime OPS in the majors.

He is perhaps the one player in all of MLB hitting the furthest over his head.
Id be shocked if he did not come crashing down over the remainder of the season, although I suppose it is possible he has improved his approach some.
