Iglesias is a 6-3 right handed hitting catcher from Miami. He is long limbed with a lean upper body and a stronger lower half. This young man has a lot of potential as a hitter. His swing looks a bit long when you first look at it but Iglesias gets the bat head to the ball and really centers up well. He had four hits in the two showcase games and another in the top prospect game. Iglesias has lift and extension in his swing and with his raw bat speed and leverage, could really develop into a top power hitter. Defensively, Iglesias receives the ball well with soft hands and has good natural arm strength. The thing that is standing in the way of his becoming an elite level catcher right now is his quickness. Iglesias has slow transfers and needs to improve his foot quickness in shifting for pitches. If he can do that, the rest of his package plays big time. Iglesias is also an excellent student who should attract the attention of some of the better academic schools.

Jose Iglesias is a Class of 2006 catcher from Miami, FL, who has a very nice and extremely projectable 6'3", 185 lb. body. His skills are raw right now, but Iglesias is a very good player to follow as he matures physically and gets more repetitions. He has good arm strength behind the plate right now and will put up some very impressive pop times as he learns to quicken his release. At the plate, Iglesias is a free swinger who gets very good extension to his swing and will hit with power in the future. He showed some bat head skills on pitches in different parts of the strike zone. Keep on eye on this young prospect! Jose is a good student.
