Jose Iglesias earning his place in Red Sox lineup

With a .426 average, he’s staying put

Red Sox manager John Farrell met with Jose Iglesias and Will Middlebrooks separately in the visiting manager’s office at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., on the afternoon of June 10 and laid out a plan he thought made sense.
