Detroit — The Tigers will be without shortstop Jose Iglesias for a few days.

Iglesias, who hit his sixth home run of the season Tuesday night, flew home to Miami after the game to be with his wife, who on Wednesday gave birth their son — Alvaro Jose.

It is Iglesias’ second son.

Iglesias is expected to miss three games and return to the team this weekend in Toronto. Unless Hurricane Irma intervenes.

Irma is predicted to hit southern Florida this weekend.

“If there are extenuating circumstances, they will be dealt with logically,” Ausmus said.
