For Hyde to say that Iglesias should bat sixth tells me one thing. The O's batting order is so bad that a hitter with a career 315 OBP should hit sixth, it just expressing that he has no one better. Iglesias OBP was .318 in 2019 and .310 the season before. In a good lineup he bats 9th and is on the field for his glove.
I expect no real change for his career average this coming season. Not at 30 years old.
The one's that say he's averaged only 1.86 WAR since 2015, after he busted onto the scene in 2013-2014. And that includes a 3.4 WAR 2017. His dWAR has also been in the negatives the last two seasons. Only a .330 OBP and .792 OPS since the end of 2014 as well, so not much of an on base guy, nor an elite power hitter. Not bad, but I just don't think he's worth spending money on in a rebuild. There's been reports too that he's a hot head and not the best teammate
