Fantasy Impact:

That's quite an uninspiring return for a valuable reliever. Iglesias is owed $9.125 million in the final year of his contract in 2021, so this is clearly a salary dump by Cincinnati. The 30-year-old Iglesias posted a 2.74 ERA with eight saves during the shortened 2020 campaign. He'll likely open the 2021 season as the Angels' primary closer, which makes him a top-12 reliever in fantasy drafts as of now.
