    Ex-Detroit Tiger Jose Iglesias roots for Miguel Cabrera to hit 500 — on Friday


    Detroit — Hard to believe, but this was Jose Iglesias’ first game back at Comerica Park since he parted ways with the Tigers after the 2018 season.

    “It’s great to be back, to see the love from the fans,” Iglesias said, waving to a couple of fans behind the Angels dugout who were holding a “Welcome Home, Jose Iglesias” sign. “I love it.”

    Iglesias has played on three different teams since he left Detroit, spending a year in Cincinnati, another in Baltimore and this year with the Angels.

    “Changing teams every year, it’s not fun,” he said. “It’s been a grind for me. But on the other hand, I’ve gotten the opportunity to play with some great players. I’ve got to play with Mike Trout, (Shohei) Ohtani, Joey Votto, so many good players.”

    At the top of that list, of course, is Miguel Cabrera, who he played with for five seasons (2013-2018).

    “Miggy and I were 24/7 like 7-11,” Iglesias said. “We were together all day long. I learned a lot from Miggy. His consistency, his leadership. He’s a unique player. He can be difficult at times, but generous Miggy is great.
