The Tigers and Jose Iglesias have agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.65 million, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Iglesias, 24, signed a four-year, $8.25 million deal with the Red Sox as an amateur free agent in 2010, but his offensive production fell off after a midseason trade to Detroit last year that sent Jake Peavy to Boston.

Iglesias, who is represented by Scott Boras, hit .259 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 46 games with the Tigers, and the Cuba native was 6-for-26 (.231) with one RBI in 11 postseason games.

He finished second in the AL Rookie of the Year voting behind Tampa Bay's Wil Myers, but that was mostly based on his hot start with the Red Sox, when he hit .330 in 63 games.
