PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias did not make the trip for Thursday's game against the Mets, as the team decided to keep him in Lakeland to give him another day to nurse his injured neck.

"No change," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said of Iglesias, who sustained a bruise on his neck on a headfirst slide into home plate during Tuesday's game against the Phillies. "He's expected to be fine. Just give him another day."
