Jose Iglesias took more ground balls at shortstop during pregame batting practice Tuesday. However, Leyland said Iglesias is still struggling to grip a bat with his bruised left hand.

Matt Tuiasosopo credited his work with Tigers coach Tom Brookens and his repetitions in left with his recent improvement in left field. The converted infielder made a leaping catch in the gap and a diving catch down the left-field line in the same game last weekend, and he tracked down a tricky drive to left that curved on him Monday night.
