Red Sox Nation can rest easy today knowing that an important bit of business has been finalized prior to Opening Day 2012. Jenny Dell, better known as Heidi Watney 2.0 to Red Sox fans, tweeted minutes ago that the Red Sox have optioned potential starting shortstop Jose Iglesias to Triple-A Pawtucket. Given that the Red Sox are a little short on shortstops, this move can only mean one thing, Mike Aviles will be manning the middle infield alongside Dustin Pedroia. Aviles got a good amount of action last season, so he should be good to go once the season starts. Look for Iglesias, who was rumored to potentially be the starting shortstop this season, to get called up here and there to get some action. Also, you can pretty much guarantee that he’ll be a September call-up.
