DETROIT — A day after he was involved in a dugout scrap with a teammate, Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias said he was fine with his role in the altercation.

“I just go by instincts, and my instincts tell me to do that,” he said. “I’m OK with it.”

Iglesias shoved catcher James McCann and threw his glove at him during a 7-2 loss to Boston on Friday night. Iglesias spoke to reporters Saturday for the first time since the dust-up.

“It wasn’t a big deal,” Iglesias said. “Things happen. It is what it is. When you deal (with) something for 162 games, everybody’s not going to be on the same page. But it’s over. It was yesterday, so we’ve just got to play better and win today.”

A replay showed McCann approaching Iglesias in the dugout. Iglesias shoved McCann in the chest before being restrained by third baseman Nick Castellanos. Then the All-Star shortstop threw his glove.

McCann said after the game it was an “in-house subject” and had been taken care of.
