Moustakas is certainly a surprise at third baseman, but Iglesias probably takes home the cake for biggest fantasy surprise of the season.

Iglesias is slashing .377/.427/.536 and leads all shortstops in batting average. Additionally, he is second among shortstops in on-base percentage and slugging percentage, behind only Jed Lowrie, who went on the disabled list this week.

The Tigers shortstop also leads the position with five stolen bases.

He doesn’t hit for much power, one home run and three RBI in April, but he is proving to be more than just a gold glove middle infielder.
