Its tough to imagine how Wednesdays 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. Iglesiasgot a knee to the head as Brad Miller slid to try to break up the play in the process:

Down went Iglesias, and downhe 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. Hes been in better shape, lets put it that way.
As a result, Iglesias is a candidate for the 7-day concussion disabled list.
The Tigers will decide if Jose Iglesias needs to be placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list today, manager Brad Ausmus said.
