JUPITER, Fla. -- Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias continues to work out back at the Tigertown complex in Lakeland as he tries to work past the soreness in his shins that has cost him a week and a half of action.

Iglesias took ground balls and threw on Sunday, manager Brad Ausmus said, but he did not run. Ausmus was waiting for an update from Monday's workout.

The goal at this point is to get Iglesias back on the field with enough time to be ready for Opening Day, a goal Ausmus noted on Sunday is approaching.
