At Least Iglesias Will Be Ready to Hit in 2016

"Marco, last year, played very well, especially the last couple of months of the season, and I know Ben felt the same way. We can take the money and improve our team in other ways... We feel like we have enough coverage at shortstop. Mike Aviles is an interesting player, and the young man is going to get his chance. Obviously, Iglesias can really play defense and I'm looking forward to seeing him. We think we're going to be OK at that position." -- Bobby V towing the company line at the Baseball Writer's Dinner in NYC
