Raisel Iglesias gets pulled in ninth inning on Monday

Raisel Iglesias was pulled in the ninth inning of Monday's game against the Astros. Iglesias, who had entered the game in the eighth inning, pitched one inning and walked two.

Fantasy Impact:

The move by manager David Bell was curious, as Iglesias walked the leadoff hitter in the ninth inning before recording an out, and only then was relieved by Michael Lorenzen. Iglesias remains the Reds' closer, but it appears his leash is shorter than it once was. Given that Lorenzen retired both Michael Brantley and Yordan Alvarez with ease, he could see additional opportunities in the future.
