With spring training coming to a rapid close, the Detroit Tigers have been saddled with an unenviable injury situation. How they deal with it could shape their season and run atop the American League Central.

According to Jason Beck of MLB.com, Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with stress fractures in both legs, leaving his 2014 season in jeopardy. 

When Detroit traded for Iglesias last July, he became the long-term solution at the position in Comerica Park. Four months later, former Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta left via free agency, opening the door for Iglesias to be an everyday player on a contending team.

Now, those plans are on hold. While Iglesias' career is in its infancy, the Tigers' window of opportunity is nearing its conclusion.

As general manager Dave Dombrowski considers replacement options, a win-now narrative will emerge for a franchise on the cusp of glory. 

Here are the top options to replace Iglesias in Detroit during the 2014 season.
